Senator CLEMONS - I wish to ask the Minister of Defence a question, without notice, arising out of his answer to Senator Dobson's question. It is whether the Senate may congratulate him beforehand on having set aside a sufficiently large sum of money to provide for the establishment of naval cadets in his new scheme relating to the Defence Forces ? I draw a distinction between naval cadets and military cadets. I understand that the answer of the Minister referred exclusively to military cadets. Will he inform me whether a sum of money will be made available for naval cadets as separate from military cadets ?

Senator PLAYFORD - I expect that I shall be able to make provision next year in regard to naval cadets ; but, in the meantime, I am communicating with Captain Creswell, and we are trying to inaugurate a scheme which I hope to be able to communicate to the Senate next year.
