Mr PAGE - Upon a point of order, I desire to know whether there is no way of enforcing direct! replies; by Ministers to questions which are put to them? I have already had occasion to complain of the difficulty of obtaining information from the Government regarding the defence estimates, and other honorable members have experienced the same trouble. It seems to me that, in defence matters particularly, the questions which are put by honorable members are always evaded. Why it is so I do not know.
