Mr ANTHONY - Has the Minister for the Armyreceived a reply to his inquiries regarding the use made by the Italians of Australian prisoners of war? I ask this question because of statements that were made by two Australians who escaped from a prison camp at Benghazi. If the report affirms their statements that their captors compelled them to work long hours, will the honorable gentleman consider theadvisability of making appropriate and effective use of the many prisoners of war in Australia in a manner similar to that employed by the enemy?
