Mr GROOM (Darling Downs) (Minister of Home Affairs) . - In some instances, these items relate to the acquisition of sites for rifle ranges. I would point out that the item relating to the Singleton rifle range is to provide for the acquisition of land, and that in several other cases we shall acquire the freehold. Many rifle ranges actually belong to the Commonwealth.

Mr Kelly - The great majority of them do not belong to the Commonwealth.

Mr Deakin - They will by-and-by.

Mr GROOM - We are, at all events, acquiring rifle ranges in the vicinity of the larger towns.
