Mr PAGE (MARANOA, QUEENSLAND) - I wish to know from the Vice-President of the Executive Council if it is true, as stated in the press, that Colonel Lyster has been appointed Commandant for Queensland. If so, is he the Colonel Lyster who was censured as the result of the Drayton Grange inquiry, and, when Commandant for South Australia, superseded by Major-General Sir Edward Hutton, because of his incompetence? If he is this Colonel Lyster, doesthe Minister of Defence think that he should be foisted upon the State of Queensland ?
