Mr BRUCE (FLINDERS, VICTORIA) - The present Minister for Trade and Customs is the gentleman referred to. During the war he rendered most valuable service, and was recognized, when these histories came to be proposed, as one of the greatest authorities upon the Palestine campaign. The view will be generally shared, I think, that the decision to ask him to write the story of that campaign for the official war history of Australia was a wise and desirable one.

As to further payments, if the honorable member places that question on the' notice-paper the information will be obtained.
