Mr CHIFLEY - I have not had an opportunity to read the remarks made by the Leader of the Opposition at the . meeting to which the honorable member refers.

Mr Menzies - My speech evidently made a big impression.

Mr.CHIFLEY. - In reply to the latter portion of the honorable member's question, I shall ask leave later to make a statement with regard to financial matters, and an opportunity will be given to honorable members to debate that statement. I then hope to be able to deal with the charge of extravagance in the use of public funds. As the honorable member. has said a great proportion of the increased expenditure estimated for this year is due to the fact that the Government must honour the promises that have been made to exservice personnel.
