Mr BEASLEY (West Sydney) (Minister for Supply and Development) . - On the motion for the adjournment of the House which the right honorable member for Kooyong (Mr. Menzies) submitted last week, I mentioned the names of a number of firms in Sydney which had refused to sign an agreement with the Clothing Trades Union in connexion with work on government contracts. In fairness to all concerned, I desire to announce that three of the firms have since signed the agreement. They are Murdoch's Manufactories Proprietary Limited, Lowe's Limited, and Gowing Brothers Limited. Three other firms which I mentioned during the debate, namely, Anthony Hordern and Sons Limited, Marcus Clark and Company Limited and David Jones Limited, have refused to sign it.
