Mr CREAN (MELBOURNE PORTS, VICTORIA) - I address a question to the Minister for Defence. Is he aware that 120 employees at the Government Aircraft Factory at Fishermen's Bend are to be dismissed immediately and that ISO more are to be dismissed at the end of the year? Has the Government in mind a programme of work to be carried on after the completion of the Mirage project? If not, does the Government believe in the gradual attrition of the aircraft industry? Does a redundancy agreement exist in respect of workers in the industry? Finally, will compensatory or severance payments be made to the employees who are dismissed?
