Mr GROOM (DARLING DOWNS, QUEENSLAND) - I have recently received a letter from the parent of a wounded man, in which it is stated that letters have been sent to him by every mail, but that he has not received any for over five weeks. Will the Assistant Minister of Defence state whether the improved system of delivery that he promised in regard to postal matter addressed to the troops has been brought into operation, or whether he has yet received any communication from Colonel Legge that effect has been given to the improved system adopted?

Mr JENSEN - It is quite possible that a wounded soldier has not received' all the letters that have been sent to him, because of the difficulty that must be experienced . in quickly locating a soldier when he is sent to hospital. There are so many hospitals that it may be difficult to find any one soldier immediately. I shall be happy to make inquiries concerning the latter portion of the question.
