Mr FISHER - I think that such a de-. finition is undesirable at the present time for the obvious reason that both Ministers are acting in full co-operation in defence matters.

Mr Groom - The question is to whom business should be addressed.

Mr FISHER - There will be no complaint if matters have to be passed on from one Minister to the other in the usual way. We might define the duties of the two Ministers to-day, and subsequently find it necessary to redefine them. As the two Departments are co-ordinated, I think it would be better to continue as at present, without attempting a precise definition of the respective spheres of the two Ministers.
