Mr CALWELL (MELBOURNE, VICTORIA) - Will the Minister for the Army make a statement to-day to the House dealing with the disaster in the Rip late last year? It will be recalled that the

Minister promised to make such a statement at the conclusion of the coroner's inquiry. However, the House rose before that inquiry was completed, and the Minister subsequently made a statement to the press. I would like the statement to be made to the House as soon as possible and the House given an opportunity to debate it.
