Senator FOLL (Queensland) (Minister for the Interior) . - On the 21st August, Senator Lamp asked when volume No. 6 of the Official History of Australia in the War of 1914-1918 would be published.

The following reply has been furnished by the Minister for the Army: -

The delay in the production of the final volume of the Australian official history of the last war has been largely due to the fact that the official historian was for some months employed by the Government on important work connected with the present war. He is, however, now completing the last chapter of the volume, most of which is already in the hands of the printer, and it is anticipated that the book will be published in December. For the information of the honorable senator it should perhaps be mentioned that the Australian . official history is, in comparison with histories of similar scope and quality, the most advanced of those of the belligerent nations of the last war.
