Mr BOSTOCK (INDI, VICTORIA) - Will the Minister for the Army investigate the stocks of steel posts and barbed wire which are held by the Army authorities, and, if possible, make some of them available temporarily to State instrumentalities for the purposes of bush fire relief, particularly in north-east Victoria? I point out that persons in that part of the State are experiencing considerable difficulty in obtaining transport for donated hay and fodder for stock. Will the Minister investigate the possibility of making Army transport available to supplement civilian transport resources, and will he also consider whether that transport can be placed at the disposal of the relief organizations which have been established?
