Senator DOBSON (Tasmania) . - I observe an item of £300 for alterations to the rifle range at Sandy Bay, near

Hobart. The Minister knows how disappointed the people of that locality are that they cannot get the range removed. Will he instruct the local military authorities to inquire whether, by shifting the butts a little more to the south, it would not be safe for us to continue the road to Mount Nelson? The road, if finished, would be one of the most magnificent roads in the world, I believe, but the work cannot be proceeded with because the bullets from the soldiers' rifles would whistle about the heads of the workmen. My idea is to move the butts a little more to the left, in order to make it safe to continue the road.
