Mr JOLLY (LILLEY, QUEENSLAND) - I bring to the notice of the Minister for War Organization of Industry the fact that a large number of men and 'women are seeking employment in Brisbane in war activities. Will the honorable gentleman give consideration to the establishment of additional munitions works in Brisbane in order that the services of these people may be absorbed?

I understand that more than 8,000 persons have registered in Brisbane with i,he national employment officer and that there is no immediate prospect of providing work for them. In other parts of Australia great difficulty is being experienced in obtaining such labour.
