Mr CARPENTER (Fremantle) . - I understand that there has been delay in regard to the acquisition of the land required for this fort; but I understood last year, when money was voted for this purpose, that the work would be proceeded with. Then a dispute arose as to the size of the guns to be used, and> the Government asked the advice of the Imperial Defence Committee on the subject. The Committee's report having come to hand, I wish to know what has been done.
