Senator PEARCE - Arising out of the appointment of an additional Minister, I desire permission of the Senate to make a statement. Since making the preliminary announcement, a Department, to be called the Department of the Navy, has been established, and the Hon. J. A. Jensen has been sworn in as Minister for the Navy. The arrangement has been made that I shall represent the Minister for the Navy here, and that the Minister for the Navy shall represent the Minister of Defence in the other House. I wish to say also that Senator Russell will represent the Treasurer in this Chamber in all matters other than the annual Budget statement.
