Mr FORDE (CAPRICORNIA, QUEENSLAND) - I ask the Minister for Defence whether it is a fact, as attributed in a report in the Melbourne press to Lieutenant-Colonel McArthur, that in the event of war it would take half the militia to round up the spies in Australia, who could paralyse the country in no time by blowing up bridges, factories and petrol dumps? Has the Minister anything to say to such comment by a responsible military officer?
