Mr CRAMER (BENNELONG, NEW SOUTH WALES) (Minister for the Army) - I assure the honorable member that all members of this House would be welcome to pay a visit to the two important exercises to which he has referred. I understand that special arrangements are being made particularly for Victorian members of this Parliament to see the exercises at Puckapunyal. Those manoeuvres will be carried out by the Citizen Military Forces as an exercise for a full brigade group. The exercise of the field force in Mackay will take place about May and will be perhaps the most important exercise ever to be carried out in peace time by the Australian Army. There will certainly be a place there for honorable members who wish to be present. The exercise will be held well out in the jungle, but honorable members will be welcome. I will certainly ask my officers to investigate the possibility of extending an invitation to ali honorable members.
