Mr Barnard asked the Minister for

Defence, upon notice:

Is he able to say what annual savings have resulted from the amalgamation of the printing units of the Navy, Army, Air Force and the Department of Supply.

Mr Gorton - The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

As previously announced, the combined printery will be located at Brunswick in an existing building being remodelled for the purpose.

As the necessary alterations to the premises have not yet been completed, the physical amalgamation of the printing units of the Army, Air Force and Supply in Melbourne has not yet taken place. However, the amalgamation is expected to result in savings in capital expenditure and to achieve greater production and increased efficiency.
