Senator SENIOR (SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - Has the attention of the Minister of Defence been called to a telegram from Adelaide in to-day's Age, in which Mr. Owen Smyth, D.S.O., is reported as having said -

I know as clearly as any man could know, without being in a position to prove it, that there is one man in South Australia who has given information to the Government of Berlin which was of value to it, and that man is in the employ of the Government of South Australia to-day.

Will the Minister make inquiries as to the truth of this statement, as it is a very serious one?
