Sir CHARLES MARR (PARKES, NEW SOUTH WALES) - Has the Minister for the Army seen a report in the current issue of Smith's Weekly that members of a militia unit camped on a race-course near Sydney had their training interrupted so that a race meeting might be held on the course, and that, they were required to clean up the course after the meeting? This has happened, it is stated, on several occasions. Will the Minister have an inquiry made,and ifthe facts are as stated, will he see that in future the training of our military forces shall have priority over the holding of race meetings ?
