Senator RUSSELL (Victoria) . - As one who has not had an opportunity of inspecting the Cordite. Factory, I would suggest to the Minister that something might possibly be done in the way of organizing parliamentary visits of inspection to these institutions. To my mind, there is an objection to an honorable senator visiting Commonwealth factories in a private capacity. At the same time, I think that we ought to be brought intoactual contact with the work that is being done there. With this end in view, I suggest that if visits could be arranged to the cordite and clothing factories, they ' would prove advantageous. I hope that the Minister will provide some facilities for honorable senators inspecting these institutions.
