Mr WATKINS - The AttorneyGeneral now informs us that the question has never been referred to him.

Mr Ewing - We shall have to see that he gets it.

Mr.W ATKINS. - How far can we give credence to replies given by Ministers if that is the position ?

Mr Isaacs - The question may have been referred to some officer of the Department, but it did not come before me personally.

Mr WATKINS - We had an assurance that the question was to be referred to the Attorney-General's Department, and I hope that a reply will be given by the honorable and learned gentleman himself. At any rate we ought to know whether the members of the Naval Brigade are to receive what is undoubtedly fair treatment.
