Mr McCAY (CORINELLA, VICTORIA) (Minister for Defence) - The answers to the honorable member's questions are as- follow : -

1.   Neither the members, of the First nor the Second Commonwealth Contingent have yet received their medals ; but advice was recently received from- the Home Government that they would shortly be ready for issue, and they may now, therefore, soon be expected. The delay, that has taken place in the matter has been occasioned, it is understood, by the large number of medals to be issued, and the necessaTy checking of the Rolls.

2.   It is not intended by the Government to award any extra medals to members of the First Commonwealth Contingent.
