Mr HAYLEN - Has the Minister for the Army seen an article which was published in the Sunday Telegraph relative to the disturbance at Gibraltar some weeks ago ? It purports to give first-hand information from a sergeant who was a member of the Victory Contingent, and who alleged in a letter to Mr. Burton, of the Returned Sailors, Soldiers and Airmen's Imperial League of Australia in Sydney, that he witnessed the affray and that the attack had come first from the Spanish police, that members of the Victory Contingent were attacked with

Datons, and that after that provocative battering had taken place, the melee had occurred? In view of these new facts will the right honorable gentleman consider Australian representation at the inquiry into the incident in order to obtain at first hand facts which would exonerate our soldiers from the libellous charges that have been published about them ?
