Mr ACTING SPEAKER - There being no objection, leave is granted.

Mr LYNCH - Subsequent to the period covered by the report the death occurred of Sir Jack Stevens, K.B.E., CB., D.S.O., E.D., who had accepted an invitation to join the Interim Council of the College. I take this opportunity of recording the Government's and the Army's appreciation of the fine contribution made by Sir Jack Stevens in both military and civilian fields over a long period of public service.

The report states that no new buildings were constructed during the period under review. Honourable members will appreciate that any decision in this regard must await the outcome of the investigation being made into the question of a tri-Service college by the committee appointed for the purpose by my colleague the Minister for Defence (Mr Fairhall). However, in the meantime steps have been taken to ensure that adequate facilities are provided at the Royal Military College to meet current needs and the expected growth with next year's cadet intake. The works proposed include extensions to the engineering workshop, physics department and chemistry laboratories.
