Senator PEARCE (WESTERN AUSTRALIA) (Minister for Defence) - I take exception to the statement that proper hospital accommodation has not been provided.

Senator O'Keefe - I said in view of certain questions having been raised in certain sections of the press.

Senator PEARCE - Proper hospital accommodation has been provided but it is not thought desirable to have women nurses in the camp at Broadmeadows, and all serious cases are sent to the hospital in St. Kilda-road, where there are women nurses.

Senator O'Keefe - In view of the statements made in the press, it is well that the information should be given to the public.
