Senator MILLEN (New South Wales) (Minister of Defence) . - I do not know that I can add anything more to what I have said. My statement clearly pointed out that the members of the Naval Board, as a whole, were not on speaking terms. It is obvious that that statement, must apply to more than one member.

Senator Long - Why do you not sack the whole lot of them?

Senator MILLEN - If I did, the honorable member would be the first to complain.

Senator Long - Not a bit of it.

Senator MILLEN - I have stated in terms as accurate as I could select that I was forced to the conclusion that the trouble that had occurred was primarily chargeable against Captain Hughes Onslow.
