Senator E J RUSSELL (VICTORIA) asked, the Minister of Defence, upon notice -

1.   For what reason was Captain Rushall, commanding officer of the Melbourne Cavalry, placed on the retired list?

2.   Did not Captain Rushall personally and voluntarily organize the first troop of mounted cadets?

3.   Did he not organize the world's tour of cadets?

4.   Is it not desirable that an officer possessing so much initiative should be encouraged rather than be placed on .the retired or unattached list?
