Senator PLAYFORD - This morning I have not had an opportunity of going through the newspapers as closely as usual, and therefore my attention had not beendrawn to this report. If such a statement was made bv Colonel Ricardo, all I have to say is that it was a very injudicious one.

Senator DAWSON (QUEENSLAND) - It is absolutely untrue.

Senator Playford - It is untrue.

Senator Lt Col Gould - If the report is correct, it was a most improper statement for an officer to make.

Senator HIGGS - Will the Minister call" for a report in reference to the speech of Colonel' Ricardo ?

Senator PLAYFORD - Undoubtedly, I shall, because I look upon it as an improper statement for an officer to make.
