Sir GRANVILLE RYRIE - The answers to the honorable member's questions are as follow: -

1.   The 1914-15 Star was designed, and the whole supply for issue to members of the Australian Imperial Force, was manufactured in Great Britain, the engraving only of the name of the recipient being carried out in Australia. I am not aware of any strong criticism from soldiers as to workmanship or quality of metal.

2.   The supply having been arranged by the Imperial Government, and the star being the same for all troops entitled, whether British or Dominion, it is not thought that any useful purpose would be served by pursuing the questions raised by the honorable member.
