Mr WARD - Is the honorable member for Wentworth (Mr. Harrison) prepared to accept such a policy?

Mr Harrison - I would accept anything in order to get the honorable gentle man into the front line; but that will never happen.

Mr WARD - The honorable gentleman is merely quibbling, in reply to my direct question. To those honorable gentlemen who talk about what service 1 might have rendered, I would say thai there is one army to which I would never belong - one that did no real fighting, but tried to undermine the democratic government of this country that we are now endeavouring to defend. I have never been a member of the New Guard, and I am proud of it. The honorable member for Wentworth, however, was a member of that organization.
