Mr FORDE - Commanding officers have power without seeking the approval of the Minister to declare hotels out of. bounds. Whilst I have not received a report upon the matter to which the honorable member referred, I understand that an officer, for disciplinary reasons, declared a certain hotel out of bounds for a period. That ban has now been lifted, and all ranks may frequent the hotel premises.

Mr Watkins - Does the Minister know the reason for the imposition of the ban?

Mr FORDE - No.
