Mr HARRISON - On the return from Malaya of Major-General Gordon Bennett honorable members were permitted to make some observations concerning a report that that officer was expected to make on the Malayan campaign. Will the Minister for the Army inform me whether any such report was made? If so, has it been used as a basis for the instruction of our forces in New Guinea, who are engaged in a conflict the tactics of which are somewhat similar to those in the Malayan campaign? Has the Minister considered sending Major-General Gordon Bennett to New Guinea so that his talents and experience, which are considerable, may be made available in the campaign there?
