Mr STREET - No trainees will go -into camp until they have been supplied with uniforms. I am unable to say on what date supplies will be issued, but if the honorable member has any particular camp- in mind I shall endeavour to supply him with the information he requires.

Mr MARTENS - Is the Minister for Defence aware that at a militia camp held at Townsville, at which more than 200 men attended, 40 per cent, of the trainees were without uniforms, and when the camp disbanded 160 of the uniforms used there were sent to a camp at Cairns ? Is such a condition of affairs likely to continue, and how long will the trainees be waiting before they receive uniforms and the necessary equipment?

Mr STREET - I shall investigate the case brought under my notice by the honorable member.
