Senator ST LEDGER (Queensland) . - May I ask the Minister why there is to he a distinction between match fittings and service fittings ? All the match fittings will be up to the standard of the service fittings, surely. We shall have matches for the rifle corps, and so on, and the fittingsfor the rifle will be for exactly the same purpose as the service fittings. If it is anAustralian product, in the one case, it is in the other. The match fittings, as far as the rifles are concerned, must be up to the standard of the service fittings, unless the latter are defective. Why make any distinction in the matter at all ?
