Mr EWING (RICHMOND, NEW SOUTH WALES) (Vice-President of the Executive Council) - The answers to the honorable member's questions are as follow: -

1.   Yes. The rule followed in the past has been to adopt the rifle used in the British army-

2.   The Woodford rifle is not known to the military authorities, but, if particulars are furnished to the Minister of Defence, further inquiries will be made.

Mr MALONEY - As a personal explanation, I should like to say that, in printing the question, my writing has been misread. I had no intention to mention the "Woodford" short service rifle, the weapon I had in mind being the short service rifle sent out to Australia. I will give fresh notice for to-morrow.
