Mr CRAMER (BENNELONG, NEW SOUTH WALES) (Minister for the Army) - I think I have announced in this House previously that I have set up in the Department of the Army a works development committee. The continuous function of that committee is to see to it that we do not hold land that is not essential to the purposes of the Army. The area in which the honorable member for Warringah is interested is a very important one. It is some time since that area was thoroughly examined by this committee and I think the honorable member was advised then that it was needed for the purposes of the Army. In addition, an inter-departmental committee has since been set up which is investigating land held by the services, but the results of that investigation are not yet available. That committee will be looking at the area in which the honorable member is particularly interested.
