Company meeting the Challenge ahead government co operation with Industry essential coordinated planning necessary in moving the adoption of the report and balance Sheet it appears to your Board of directors a fitting occasion to give expression to several matters affecting the period of reconstruction after the War said or. E. W. Holden m.l.c., chairman of directors of general motors Holden s Ltd., at the annual meeting yesterday. Our responsibilities to employees shareholders and Many other organisations associated with us in our business activities Are of Paramount importance said or. Holden. We Are concerned with the fact however that Sev-1 eral salient factors Ait can the postwar problem have become no clearer since the last annual can be no question of the uns tinted support Given to the National Effort by australian Industry in All its by Anches and the fact that approximately 85 per cent of the total Tnp loved in the Supply of War materials and ser vices were and Are engaged in the factories and establishments operated by private Enterprise indicates that Industry was responsible for the bulk of the nation s War production. Neither can there be any question that Industry will have to make the major contribution to the National objective of providing gainful employment in the period of l reconstruction to Many thousands if workers and sex servicemen. This responsibility rests heavily on the shoulders of employers and particularly has your Board been concerning it self with the problem since up wards of 10,000 employees of this company and their dependants Are directly and Many thousands in directly affected. The problem varies greatly in different forms of Industry. With Many concerns the wartime pro duct s have been identical with peacetime products in which Case there is Little or no change but in the Case of this company they have changed dramatically As borne out by the fact that we Are supplying a wide Range of War materials and services at the rate of approximately �12,000,000 per annul. To Effet t a conversion Back to the prod action of motor transportation even if the course were clearly discernible would take at least a year from the time production planning commenced before tooling and preparation fort production was completed. A Frank statement needed our chief consideration before we can move further is to have from the government some Indi cation As to what priority motor transportation will be Given in re lation to other postwar activities and a Frank statement with re Gard to its policy on the importation of motor classes from overseas countries. Such a Decla ration at the earliest possible moment would be extremely Wel come. An absolute necessity in any civilised Community and particularly in Australia the Supply of motor vehicles is a Basic Industry and. Therefore looms largely in the economic picture. Because we have not had any new passenger cars and Many types of Commer Cial vehicles for some years there is an immense number of obsolete and inefficient vehicles on the roads to Day and it is essential if the pressing demands of the Many and varied postwar activities Are to be quickly and efficiently met that modern motor transportation be made available As soon As the War situation permits. Consult leaders of Industry we Are mindful of the fact that the government is already concerning itself with the various problems of our National Economy in the postwar period and we be Lieve it is realised that our National Security and Well being rest fundamentally on internal Unity. We consider it important there fore that the government in its various branches should consult with the leaders of Industry on a basis of Mutual co operation and understanding in older that a pro per determination of the problem be achieved for the maximum Good., backlog of savings a valuable contribution to stabilise the immediate postwar Economy would be the collaboration of government with Industry in devising a workable plan for the absorption of labour and spreading of production and Pur chasing of All types of commodities to meet the enormous spend ing urge which will come because of the tremendous backlog of savings. This Calls for careful Mutual planning in order that the Law of Supply and demand May operate within sound limits. As production expands the position will adjust itself and the Law of Supply and demand should then be allowed to operate freely again otherwise the objective of an expanding peacetime economy1 will be seriously prejudiced. Private Enterprise undoubtedly there Are some aspects of private Enterprise at which ure Finger of Adverse critic be pointed but. Let us Root forget that working conditions and the Standard of living have advanced further and faster since the Industrial revolution in England Early in the 19th Cen Tury than at any previous time in history. This advancement has been made because of the Competition which prevails within the pattern of private Enterprise with its attendant competitive research providing through the application of scientific developments new and improved products at Low production costs to the maximum number of people. Particularly has this applied in Australia and we feel sure that the added impetus Given to Indus trial research and expansion Dur i ing the War can be Best utilised to advantage if sound planning is carried out. We on the one hand know the intricacies of our own particular Industry the govern ment on the other hand is charged with the responsibility of determining the general direction for the Well being of the people arid in View of the fact that Good results have been achieved by round table conferences Between the government and the motor Industry in countries such As great Britain Canada and the ., there seems to be no reason Why we should not adopt the same procedure Here. Problems of the Pacific Australia is destined to play a much greater part in the prob lems of the Pacific both from a primary production and manufacturing Point of View and it is obvious to All that in the immediate future she will have to develop her resources increase her popu lation and generally expand if for no other reason than to be role to defend herself against future aggression. To achieve this objective Australia will have to make it sufficiently attractive to people and capital to come Here and this will have to be effected in Competition with other1 coun tries who will be concentrating on their development and economic expansion for a similar Rea son. It would appear reasonable therefore to expect the govern ment to encourage overseas in vestments in Australia. Rehabilitation and taxation Australia s particular pattern of wartime finance and taxation As applying to Industry seems directly at variance with that obtaining in overseas countries. It is understood that in great Britain Canada and the Very Large amounts spent on plants facilities buildings and equipment have to a marked degree if not entirely been written off As a War expenditure giving Industry the Opportunity to make goods available to the Public after the War unburdened by excessive costs incurred during the War. The following statement which was recently published amplifies this Point there is one notable differ ence in the taxation of companies in Britain and Australia. In Bri Tain with an Eye to the rehabilitation of Industry and the re placement of machinery and stocks their has been set aside from company taxation a Post War credit which is now Accord ing to the Chancellor of the exchequer growing by �40,000,000 to �50,000,000 annually. This will prove of immense and immediate importance in employment As soon As the War ends. The British treasurer announced As a Basic postwar measure the encourage ment of the drive for Export markets and allowances to Indus try immediately the War ends. Apart from existing tax free allowances for Wear and tear there will be a special initial allowance of 20 per cent on All new Plant and machinery. In addition there will be a 10 per cent deduction on All new Industrial buildings if this example were followed in Australia it would be an effective step taken to rehabilitate and modernise Industry and to enable it to withstand the Impact of com petition from overseas As Well As to provide the necessary employ ment in the shortest time. To permit the Normal healthy expansion of Industry encourage the establishment of new Indus tries and also attract overseas concerns various forms of War time taxation such As the War time company tax the super tax the undistributed profits tax and the special tax of 30 pel1 cent on overseas shareholders dividends should be removed As soon As pos sible after the cessation of hostilities. Disposal of surplus supplies at the end of the Wai it is presumed that one of the first moves will be the disposal by the government of the enormous stocks of surplus s supplies but based on the experience obtaining after the last War this is a difficult problem needing the fullest co operation with Industry com Merce and nil concerned. If the disposal of sup plies is carried out in a haphazard manner the results in terms of unemployment disruption of Indus try and dislocation of Normal Trade distribution channels would not Only be great in its immedi Ste effect but would have repercussions for Many years m the postwar period. We sincerely commend that committees be appointed to handle this Gigantic task Aid that an orderly plan of procedure be determined in association with Industry and Trade at the earliest possible moment. The Challenge ahead widening employment opportunities a dynamic and expand ing Economy and a higher stand Ard of living Are the peacetime objectives that Challenge the imagination of every individual in the country. With sound planning by Industry in full co operation with the government the Victory of War can become a lasting Victory for peace. As it is the Malu responsibility of a Board of directors to indicate Broad direction for the future of any Enterprise More so at this particular stage than Ever before in history but. Little Progress has been made unfortunately due in the main in the opinion of your Board to the Lack of clarification of certain major issues by the government. In Many directions this com Pany has done whatever is pos sible to encompass certain aspects of the great Challenge ahead of us. We have devoted time and Money to research and carefully Analysed our own activities to re veal where inefficiencies Lay and where improvements could be Brough about. Furthermore we have embarked on a programme of training with a View to develop ing the technical ability of our personnel. We look Forward to the Day when our. Employees re turn from the fighting services and other government activities and above All else it is our earn est desire to provide them with Good steady employment. To do this however we would again reiterate planning is difficult in the absence of a declaration of government policy with regard to those matters which directly affect the motor Industry. It is most desirable that such a Decla ration be made without rain slows Down Tram line repairs Sydney Friday. The running staff. Of Sydney s trams fear a Complete disorganisation of Tram traffic if bad Wea ther continues. They say that urgently needed repairs to lines Are being held up by intermittent rain. It was stated to Day that due to War time overloading on trams 350 of the 1400 trams in Sydney Are daily under repair. Basketball the following is the draw for to Day a Grade . 1 w.a.a.f., 2 .

Insurance on race meeting not held Rosehill gets �940 Sydney Friday in a reserved decision in the supreme court to Day Justice Roper announced that the army is to pay �940 compensation to the Rosehill racing club. The matter came before the court by Way of application for a review of the order made by the compensation Board. His honour said that on March 19, 1942. The army took posses-1 Sion of the racecourse but agreed to let the club hold a meeting on1 March 21. The club paid �60 for Ani insurance policy under which it would have received �1000 if 10 Points of rain fell on the morning of the meeting. The army cancelled the meet ing but on March 21, More than 10 Points of rain fell. The club claimed �940 on the basis that if the army ? had not cancelled the meeting �1000 insurance would have been collected. Industrial disputes Sydney Friday. Commenting on the position that had developed through the strike on the waterfront the Leader of the country party or. Fadden declared that every fair minded australian must regard with grave concern the position which Iliad Arisen when the government was forced to use sol Diers to unload ships just because it was spineless in its attitude. Or. Fadden added that for some time he and other members of the country party had been gravely concerned at the extent to which the government was prepared to use soldiers to do work which Trade unionists should be doing and he declared that the govern ment was on trial. The acting prime minister or. Forde and the attorney general do. Evatt must demonstrate their prepared Ness to subordinate everything else for National considerations otherwise there was every likelihood that a general paralysis would develop.
