SenatorFOLL.- Will the Minister for the Interior set out the circumstances surrounding the withdrawal of a large number of men who have been engaged in the construction of the graving dock somewhere in Australia ? Will the withdrawal of these men mean that the completion of that important work will be delayed? Is it not a fact that with the loss of certain territory adjacent to Australia - Singapore, for instance - the completion of this dock is probably one of the most urgent requirements of the allies in this part of the world? Will the Minister give an assurance that the work has not been interfered with or delayed?
