1.   What is done with telephone instruments when discarded by his Department because of wear or for other reasons?

2.   Is it true that a number of such instruments were recently sold at a very low price, after a much better oiler had beenmade for them for use in connexion with rifle ranges and refused ?

3.   Will the Minister confer with the Department of Defence with a view to giving rifle clubs an opportunity of securing some of these instruments at a fair valuation?
