Mr FENTON - Will the Assistant Minister of Defence say what preparations, improvements, and alterations are being made at the Broadmeadows Camp for the reception of troops later on, and to prevent a recurrence of the trouble that arose prior to the removal of the camp to Seymour? Can he inform the House on what date the troops will be brought back from Seymour to Broadmeadows?

Mr JENSEN - A Committee has been appointed, to inspect the Broadmeadows Camp, and report to the Minister as to whether it would be wise to keep Broadmeadows as a training camp, or whether it would be better for the troops to remain at Seymour. The report, which has been received by the Minister, is favorable to the alteration of the Broadmeadows Camp, and improvements are suggested that will involve the expenditure of £5,000 or £6,000. It is believed that when these improvements are effected, soldiers will find every comfort at Broadmeadows,

An HONORABLE MEMBER. - Is it private property ?
