The PRESIDENT - Order ! The honorable senator is not himself entitled to make a statement in asking a question, much less to quote a statement made by some one else.

Senator DUNCAN - I ask the Minister if it is a fact that a statement was made by Mr. Poynton, in which he said that the Defence Department was in a state of flux, and that the seventy days' training proposal, provided for in the' Defence Bill at present before the Senate, is to be brought into effect by regulation when the Prime Minister (Mr. Hughes) returns from the Imperial Conference.-
