Mr CROUCH asked the Prime Minister, upon notice -

1.   Has the statement that " there are 103 permanent artillerymen kicking up their heels in Victoria Barracks, Melbourne," been correctly attributed in the press to the Honorable the- Minister of Defence?

a.   What number of guns are there at these barracks on which these scientific artillerymen can be practised ?

3.   What reason is there why these men should not 'be stationed at the guns at the Heads, and not in Melbourne?
