Senator BROWN (Queensland) , -Provision was once made - under the Department of Defence for subsidizing gliding clubs. I have brought this matter up on several occasions, because I believe that we should encourage gliding in this country. It is true that quite a number of people are opposed to the idea. It is generally recognized to-day that the Government would have been wise to encourage gliding clubs so as to develop airmindednessamongst young Australians. I should like also to have some explanation of the item relating to expenditure on rifle clubs.

Senator Foll - I cannot give the information offhand.
