MORE MUNITIONS WANTED. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 19 June 1915
MORE MUNITIONS WANTED. v All sections of the community are agreed that there is need for a far greater out put of war munitions in Australia. Even the Federal and two State Governments have awakened to the fact that we are not doing sufficient in this direction. This in itself is surely proof positive of the need, because peculiarly enough the Governments in Australia are the last to awaken to a realisation of a need for reforms of any kind. In nearly every paper one reads articles setting out reasons why there should be a general speeding up in the manufacture of small arms, and that Australia should, with out delay, go in for the manufacture of other war munitions. The report laid on the table of the Federal House during this week in connection with the manufacture of small arms at the Lithgow factory proves conclusively that the works have not been utilised to their fullest extent. And, unfor tunately, there is a doubt in the public, mind as to whether the Federal Government is e...

This gentlepan.Mr. P. Mbran, and has just completed a large building for the A.M.P. Society at Dubbo. Interviewed, on the question of buildings at this time, he said, 'There's one bit of advice I would give to those who contemplate building, and I do not do so from self-interested motives^, for I shall not be a tenderer for contracts here. I would say to those to build at once. After the war necessity will continue and. expand the boom, but there will be a ?very- great increase in labor and the, cost of mat erials as compared to the prices and rates ruling now. This will be due to the short age of labor, both skilled and artisan.' This advice is worthy of careful considera tion by those in Lithgow who had conteisi plated (before war commenced) putting money into house property. Afte...
