Mr EWING (RICHMOND, NEW SOUTH WALES) (Vice-President of the Executive Council) - The answer to the honorable and learned member's question is as follows : -

The decision of the Military Board relative to uniform promulgated for the information and guidance of Commandants as far back as November, 1905, was that Commanding Officers who so desired could retain the full dress in use prior to Federation, but must adopt the khaki uniform for service, ordinary parades, camps, &c. The Board does not know what action has been taken by Commanding Officers of regiments and corps, who desire to revert to the old full dress uniform, but inquiries are being made with a view to obtaining full particulars. When these particulars have been received, the whole matter will receive the Minister's consideration, and a definite reply to the honorable member's question will be given.
