Mr JAMES (HUNTER, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I ask the Minister who is acting for the Minister for Munitions whether it has been the custom at Rutherford munitions canteen to cater for the requirements of those who are engaged otherwise than upon the production of munitions, particularly those employees of the Water Board who are performing essential work there, upon the completion of which they will be transferred to the munitions establishment? If so, will he state whether approximately 100 of these men have been notified that from next Monday they are to discontinue using the canteen for their meals, and that, if the decree be enforced, there is every likelihood of a hold-up occurring at the factory? Will the honorable gentleman instruct the factory management that the canteen must continue to provide meals for these men?
