Mr SPEAKER - Both the honorable member for Eden-Monaro (Mr. Perkins) and the honorable member for Richmond f Mr. Anthony) have been called from the Chair to-day.

Mr Perkins - I have not been called to ask a question.

Mr Anthony - Nor have I.

Mr SPEAKER - The honorable gentlemen have both been called, and have made speeches.

Mr Perkins - That is quite a different thing.

Mr SPEAKER - The honorable member for Forrest may proceed.

Mr PROWSE - I desire some information about enemy action against Western Australia, but any reply to questions, to be of value, would need to be given in secret. I therefore wish to know whether the Government will arrange for a secret meeting of senators and members some time later in the day in order that information may be given about the Government's intentions respecting the defence of parts of the coast of Western Australia ?
