Mr McCAY - The gun has not yet been transferred. It is to be transferred in connexion with the erection of fortifications at Fremantle,

Mr Mauger - Will the Minister have it consecrated ?

Mr McCAY - I do not see that the invocation of the Divine blessing on regimental flags is detrimental to the Commonwealth of Australia.

Mr Mauger - It is not viewed seriously by thoughtful men nowadays.

Mr McCAY - However, that has nothing to do with this question. As I was saying, this gun is to be transferred to Fremantle if Parliament decides that the fortifications are to be proceeded with. In that event South Australia will be credited with the value of the gun. " The debit will probably be distributed amongst the States on a population basis.
