Mr CROUCH (CORIO, VICTORIA) asked the Minister for Defence, upon notice -

1.   What was the date of the appointment, of Lieutenant R. E.. Sheldon, and to what corps?

2.   Was Lieutenant Sheldon under engagement from England, and in what capacity, and when did his engagement expire?

3.   Is there any reason why Lieutenant Sheldon should be so appointed to a permanent position when other Australian engineers were equally competent ?
