Senator MULLAN (Queensland) . - I do not suppose that the Minister of Defence thinks it worth his while to deal with a matter affecting unionists.


Senator Pearce - I have replied to you already


Senator MULLAN - Yes, but perhaps not in the light of the whole of the correspondence. I have refreshed the Minister's mind on this matter. It possibly needed refreshing, because he has a big Department, and his duties are onerous. Before I went into this matter more fully, I gave the Minister full credit for possibly not having seen the correspondence, but now that I know he has seen it and dealt with it, and now that I have refreshed his memory, I am not going to ask him for an inquiry, but I want to know whether he intends to grant an inquiry ? I expect an answer from the Minister.
