Mr STREET - There is not, in this appointment of the Inspector-General of the Military Forces, the implication suggested in the first part of the honorable gentleman's question. The arrangement is merely a temporary one, designed to avoid dislocation in view of important changes that will shortly be made in connexion with- the introduction of the command system, is hoped will be completed before this House next goes into recess. Frequently in the past, particularly in the case of General Sir Harry Chauvel, the duties of InspectorGeneral of the Military Forces and Chief of -the General Staff have been capably discharged by one man. On this occasion, the arrangement will operate for a period of only about four weeks.
