Senator PEARCE (WESTERN AUSTRALIA) (Minister for Defence) - I do not know whether the statement made by the honorable senator is a correct report of what appears in the Age.

Senator Mullan - It is, substantially.

Senator PEARCE - The facts are that the Broken Hill Proprietary Company has received the specification, which, I understand, they obtained from the Imperial Government through their representatives in London. The Home authorities have informed us that they have sent the specification to the Federal Government, but the steamer by which it is being sent has not yet arrived in Australia. The Broken Hill Proprietary Company has made available to us a copyof the specification it has received.
