Mr JESS (LA TROBE, VICTORIA) - I desire to ask the Minister for the Army a question. He may remember that yesterday the honorable member for New England asked him about the recent exercise Long Shot and that in his reply he said it proved without doubt that Australia was able to mount and maintain a force on a far shore. He added -

This exercise also demonstrated that with more men the Army could do this more comfortably and with less disruption to the Australian support area.

Will the Minister explain more clearly for the lay mind what is meant by "more comfortably and with less disruption to the Australian support area "?
