Senator HIGGS (QUEENSLAND) - I desire to ask theMinister of Defence, without notice, whether he has had his attention drawn to the report in yesterday's Age of the complaintsmade by Sydney riflemen with regard tolax marking ; whether he has observed that Captain Lindsay stated that although he had had no experience like that which had' been related, he was not altogether satisfied with the marking, that Captain Payne, the New South Wales representative on the Commonwealth Council, said' it was wellknown that the markers could make anybody they pleased win, and that Lieutenant Stevens, another member of the New South Wales team, went on to say that although seven shots was the limit with the "running man," one man was found to have got nine hits i and, if so, whether he will- have the matters inquired into, and a report furnished to the Senate?
