Mr RYAN (FLINDERS, VICTORIA) - I address a question to the Minister for the Army. A few days ago the theft took place from the quartermaster's store of the Essendon High School Cadet Corps, of a considerable quantity of military equipment, including two austen sub-machine guns and eleven service rifles. Has the Minister caused an investigation to be made to ascertain how the theft took place and the ultimate destination of the stolen goods? If so, what was the result of the investigation? What special precautions are being taken to ensure that the property of the Department of the Army is properly safeguarded and is not allowed to fall into unauthorized hands?
