Mr CHIFLEY (MACQUARIE, NEW SOUTH WALES) - Instructions were issued some time ago by my department that steps should be taken to prevent any machine gun or Lewis gun from being removed from* the practice ground in a condition in which it could be used. The regrettable occurrence referred to by the honorable member will be the subject of a coronial inquiry, and at this stage it would be injudicious for me to make any statement as to the responsibility for the accident. When the inquiry has been completed, I shall furnish the honorable member with a full report on the whole incident.
