This is the report of the Vice-President of the Executive Council, Senator Gardiner : -

On reading the report of Mr. Orchard's speech in the Sydney morning papers, I immediately set out for the Liverpool encampment. On arrival at Liverpool, I wired to Senator Pearce, Minister of Defence, that I was going to have a look round, to see for myself the conditions. Going into camp, I reported to the Camp Commandant (Lt.-Colonel Kirkland) that I had read Mr. Orchard's charges, and wanted to see for myself what the conditions were like.

Mr Orchard - Why did he not go to the men?
