Mr SPEAKER -Order ! The honorable member will cease interrupting.

Mr FRANCIS - The Army has no steel posts or barbed wire. Substantial requisitions for this type of material have been lodged with the Department of Supply. I made personal investigations in order to determine the facts because I \v«s eager to provide help for primary producers who had suffered loss as a result of bush fires. I should be very glad to provide the materials if the Army had any stocks of them. I shall consider the suggestion by the honorable member for Indi that Army vehicles be made available to assist in the transportation of gift fodder for farmers and graziers whose properties have been swept by fire. I shall be happy to arrange for all possible aid to be given.
