Sir GRANVILLE RYRIE - The answer to the honorable member's question is as follows: -

As the honorable member mentions Anzac tweed, it is assumed that the hand-woven tweed made under the control of the Anzac Tweed Trust by returned soldiers is alluded to. This material, when available, is sup- plied to any tailor on application to the Secretary, Anzac Tweeds, 346 Collins-street, Melbourne.

Quite apart from Anzac tweed, material for civilian suits is being made at the Commonwealth Government Woollen Mills, North Geelong, for sale to returned sailors and soldiers only. The Returned Sailors and Soldiers' Imperial League of Australia in the several States are the contractors for the distribution of this tweed. Priority of application is the governing factor in ascertaining the order in which demands are to be met, irrespective of whether or not the applicant is a member of the Returned Sailorsand Soldiers' Imperial League of Australia.
