Mr FORDE - Wet canteens have been operating in militia camps in Australia for the greater part of the year.

Sir Frederick Stewart - By whose authority?

Mr Rankin - By the authority of the Defence Act.

Mr FORDE - Upon the return of the Australian Imperial Force from overseas, many members of it were placed in militia camps, and worked alongside members of the Australian Military Forces. It was consequently considered advisable that all should be placed on the one footing in regard to canteens. This decision was made by the Commonwealth Government many months ago.
