SHIPS BUILDING IN AUSTRALIA LAYING DOWN OF NEW YARDS URGED [Newspaper Article] — Albury Banner Wodonga Express and Riverina Stock Journal — 31 January 1941
SHIP BUILDING IN AUSTRALIA LAYING DOWN OF NEW YARDS URGED (By Paul Cheyne, Secretary Australian Development League) Ships built in Australia by mass production at a cost less than those Britain is buying from the United States, is con sidered feasible by a Sydney ex pert. The laying down of new yards — each capable of turning out 51 ships a year — is strongly urged. lAustralia is already aiding the war efforts of the homeland by large ex ports of iron and . steel. It is building its own aircraft, tanks, guns, and manufacturing vast quantities of munitions in additioja to '-.supplying the major iron and steel requirements of local commercial industries. Whether there would be sufficient skilled men and material to carry out the ambitious proposals' now made is a question wlich can be decided only after the', closest investigation. One thing, however, is certain. Every effort should -be made, to extend ship building , in the Commonwealth so that after the war -fiot~ only our yards may...

Beeemtraliisatieii M-»re , Urgent;; EXPORTS MUST BE INOREASEO AUSTRALIA CAN LEARN LESSON FROM CANADA (By A 'Banner' Staff Writer.) If Australia is to continue to progress as a nation, the vital necessity for a more comprehensive scheme of decen- j tralisation of industry is becoming more and more urgent. Already Canada has taken action to ensure a more wide spread distribution of industry, and this has been followed by an almost immediate increase in exports, until to-day that Dominion is the third exporting, country of the world.. The war has added, not detracted,- to the possibilities-^ Australia as a great exporting nation, but this natural growth has been strangled by the refusal of the Government ? to realise that Australia does not^§Wsist of Melbourne and Sydney, nor even- of all the capital cities, but of a vast nation, with innumerable large provincial, towns gradually being sent bankrupt by the lack of the backbone of industry. Albury is singularly fortunate that t can cont...
