Mr HOLLOWAY - The book mentioned by the honorable member will become famous yet.

Sir CHARLES MARR - What is written in it is correct. For the first time in my experience in this Parliament, the Government has prepared for the information of honorable members a statement which gives a bird's eye view of the activities of the various government departments engaged in war activities. The statement shows that, in regard to our defence forces and the supply of munitions, we are in a better position than ever before. I hope that those forces will never be used for aggressive purposes, but only for the defence of this country, if at all. I believe that if our security should ever be threatened the best place to defend Australia will be outside, not inside, its borders.
