Mr EWING (RICHMOND, NEW SOUTH WALES) (Vice-President of the Executive Council) - Some little time ago, the honorable and learned) member for Corio asked some questions about some remarks made by Major Garrard in regard to certain guns at Queenscliff. I am now supplied with the following answer: -

Re Major Garrard'sremarks as to {our of the guns at the forts at Queenscliff being without ammunition, after a full consideration of what was required as regards the guns foi defence, Major-General Sir Edward Hutton classed these guns as reserve, and did not consider it necessary to provide cordite for them. There is the ordinary ammunition available for use by them at practice.
