Mr RYAN (FLINDERS, VICTORIA) - Will the Minister for Defence inform me whether the Commonwealth Disposals Commission still has several hundred service rifles for sale? Are the rifles being sold, and if they are, in what numbers? If sales are being made, is it 'possible for members of the public to buy rifles? What precautions have been taken in the past, and are being taken now to ensure that the rifles shall not fall into hands in which they may represent a danger to peace and' order in the Commonwealth?
