Mr McBRIDE (WAKEFIELD, SOUTH AUSTRALIA) (Minister for Defence) - The matter of whether the Commonwealth should co operate with the States in the setting up of fire-fighting organizations has, as far as I know, never been considered in the civil field. However, my colleague, the Minister for the Interior, who administers the civil defence organization, is at present consulting with the States in an attempt to evolve fire-fighting organizations to fight fires which may be caused during a war by enemy or local sabotage.
