Mr SPEAKER - Debates on questions are quite irregular.

Mr RYAN - I ask the Assistant Minister for Defence if it is a fact that, on or about the 28th July last, military forces from Queenscliff and Swan Island were sent to Melbourne, with large quantities of ammunition, and under arms, for some purpose, and, if so, for what purpose.

Sir GRANVILLE RYRIE - I say again that, realizing exactly the reason for which the honorable member asks the question, and the purpose of the question, I decline to give any information on the subject.

Mr Ryan - Then I shall take suitable steps to get it.
