Senator BAKHAP - Will the Minister of Defence expedite the production of the presentation of the information for which I asked some time ago, namely, as to the percentage of married men in the first Expeditionary Force? The information is necessary to me, and I may have to take certain action based upon it.

Senator PEARCE - I can only say that every effort is being made to get the information as early as possible. Honorable senators, I am sure, realize the enormous amount of work which is being put on the Department, especially on the clerical staff, particularly in connexion with the pay branch, which has possession of the rolls. Everything that can be done to expedite the presentation of the information is being done, but I will again make a note of the request, and see that the inquiry is pushed forward as fast as possible.
