Senator Sir GEORGE PEARCE - The Minister for Defence has furnished the following reply to the honorable senator's question : -

About four years ago, in deference to the wishes of the Hobart City Council and other interested parties, the Defence Department agreed to transfer the small arms range from Sandy Bay to Glenorchy. The terms and conditions of transfer, concerning which the honorable senator was fully advised some time ago, were accepted by the council during 1935. These were reduced to a formal deed of agreement between the two parties the draft of which the council submitted to the Defence Department during April, 1936 Minor aspects of this agreement are now being adjusted prior to completion of the deed by the parties.
