Senator PLAYFORD (South Australia) (Minister of Defence) . - According to my note -

The armament of Hobart is insufficient. It is necessary to mount a modern gun commanding the approaches and the Derwent. The design is such that, at a future date, another gun can be mounted by extending the proposed work.

Senator Dobson - What is the size of the gun?

Senator PLAYFORD - I suppose that it will be a 6.7 inch gun, as recommended bv the Imperial Defence Committee.
