Mr CURTIN - I am not at present in a position to estimate whether there will be any justification for holding a secret session of the Parliament. I propose presently to deal with the existing state of the war as fully as can be done in this chamber. After debate on that statement honorable members may decide whether or not there are specific subjects on which they desire to be more fully informed. If those matters are communicated to me, I shall then consider how far the interests of the country and the responsibility of Parliament can be served by holding, not a secret session, but a private joint meeting of senators and honorable members.
