Mr BEATON (BENDIGO, VICTORIA) - I direct a question to the Prime Minister, and I preface it by referring the right honorable gentleman to a statement that he made in Bendigo during the recent by-election to the effect that no retrenchments were planned at the Bendigo ordnance factory apart from normal staff fluctuations. In view of the numerous transfers, demotions and dismissals now taking place at the factory, and the continued unsettling rumours that further big changes are to take place, will the Prime Minister re-assure the people of Bendigo by re-affirming in this House the statement that he made during the by-election campaign?
