Mr MASSY-GREENE (RICHMOND, NEW SOUTH WALES) - Can the Assistant Minister of Defence say whether all the troops now in training have been supplied with warm clothing, and whether, if they are training in dungarees, he considers that they are clothed in good winter material 1

Mr JENSEN - Some of the recruits in camp may be clothed in dungarees, bub. they are all supplied with warm woollen singlets and underpants. The medical authorities say that in this way they are sufficiently warmly clothed.

Mr JOSEPH COOK - Can the Assistant Minister of Defence explain the unconscionable delay that occurs in telegraphing casualties to Australia ? I cite my own case. My son was wounded on the first day of the Dardanelles operations, but sixteen days elapsed before he was reported wounded here.
