Mr GREEN (Kalgoorlie) .- 1 desire to bring under the notice of the Minister for Defence a proposal for the establishment of a motor cycle corps, which I understand has the support of a highly-placed military officer in South Australia. No such suggestion was made to me while I was Minister for Defence, and I do not know what duties such a corps would undertake, but I have seen on the films pictures of military motor cycle corps in Germany. There are thousands of young fellows who own motor cycles, and they would be keen to offer the services of themselves and their machines if some allowance were made for operating costs. The adoption of the suggestion might help the Minister for Defence in the campaign to increase the strength of the militia. I put it before him for what it is worth.
