Mr Guy y asked the Minister for the Navy, upon notice -

When does he anticipate that he will complete his promised inquiries into the complaint made by parents of members of the Royal Australian Navy, and presented to him by the honorable members for Bass (Air. Barnard) and Wilmot (Mr. Guy), some four or five months ago, that members of the Royal Australian Navy were obliged to pay first-class fares on steamers between Melbourne and Tas- mania on the pretence that no second-class accommodation was available, when in fact such second-class accommodation was available, and. further, that some of the members of the Royal Australian Navy were charged different rates for such first-class fares?

Mr Makin - The result of the inquiry should be available this week or early next week, and I will place it before the honorable member immediately.
