Senator PEARCE (Western Australia) . - I ask the Minister of Defence whether it is not a fact, as I stated previously in his absence, that the re-vote set down opposite this item is only a re-vote for additional office accommodation for the Military Branch, and that the proposal to house the Naval Staff at the Victoria Barracks is an entirely new one

It is a proposal which he himself has initiated, and not one which the Government inherited from their predecessors.
