Senator PEARCE - Parades, similar to that which was held in Melbourne on Saturday last, have been held in Sydney, Brisbane, and Adelaide, and arrangements are in train to hold similar parades in Perth and Hobart whenever the GovernorGeneral visits those centres, which it is expected will be shortly. In regard to the second question, if any specific instances are brought under my notice, they will be dealt with on their merits.

Senator CHATAWAY - Can the Minister inform the Senate whether the reason for holding the recent parades of cadets was. the receipt of certain suggestions from the Imperial authorities?

Senator PEARCE - No suggestion of any kind has come from the Imperial authorities with respect to parades of cadets. The idea of having a parade originated in a suggestion made by the Governor-General that he would like to have an opportunity of reviewing the whole of the cadets on the occasion of his visits to the capital cities.

Senator Chataway - Did the suggestion to the Governor-General come from the Imperial authorities?

Senator PEARCE - Not to my knowledge.
