Mr FORDE (CAPRICORNIA, QUEENSLAND) (Minister for the Army) - A complaint has been received, and it is now being investigated. I remind the honorable member that during the war, thousands of inventions were submitted to the Army Inventions Directorate, and many hundreds of disappointed inventors afterwards claimed that Australia had lost millions of pounds and many lives because their inventions bad not been adopted. The case to which the honorable member referred is being investigated and I shall supply an answer as soon as possible.
