Senator E B JOHNSTON (WESTERN AUSTRALIA) - I ask the Minister representing the Minister for the Army whether it is a fact that the evacuation of several hundred American troops who- have been camped on the Randwick race-course, Sydney, for some time past, has been ordered to permit a race meeting being held on that race-course on the 23rd instant? In the interests of the war effort will the Government give instructions that these troops are not to be removed for the inadequate reason mentioned, and that the races set down for that course for the 23rd instant be held elsewhere?
