Mr BAMFORD (HERBERT, QUEENSLAND) - I wish to know from the Minister representing the Minister of Defence whether Commonwealth troops paraded yesterday at the opening of the Victorian Parliament? If so, did they parade with fixed bayonets, and were they supplied with ball cartridges? If they paraded with fixed bayonets, I should like to know if it is usual for troops to so parade at what is really a peaceful function ?
