Mr PIGOTT (Calare) .- I congratulate the honorable member for Fremantle on the suggestion he has made, and I hope that it will be accepted. I also take the opportunity of congratulating the new Minister on his appointment. I believe that if the matter of the manufacture of munitions, clothing, and so forth, is transferred to his Department, the position will be more satisfactory than it has been hitherto. I believe that the suggestion for an additional Minister emanated from the Opposition some time ago. I am particularly pleased to hear that the Prime Minister is going to appoint a Committee from both sides of the House to offer suggestions and advice in regard to the proper prosecution of the war, and to act as a sort of Advisory Committee to the Government. I think that the trouble with the Government is that all honorable members are not kept occupied. I should like to see every honorable member on either side appointed to some Committee.

The CHAIRMAN - Order ! That is not the question before the Chair. The honorable member will have another opportunity of discussing that matter.
