Mr CALWELL (MELBOURNE, VICTORIA) - Some time ago the Minister for the Army promised the House that immediately the coronial inquiry into the disaster at the Rip, Port Phillip Heads, Victoria, had concluded, he would make a statement to the House. I have not seen the Minister about for some days, and I should like to know from the Acting Prime Minister whether he will arrange for that statement to be given to honorable members this afternoon before Parliament adjourns for the long winter recess. The last I heard of the Minister for the Army was that he was up in Queensland sampling bully beef. Will the Acting Prime Minister do his best to obtain the Minister's statement which, I understand, is ready for delivery, and see that some Minister presents it to the House before it rises?
