Mr SPEAKER - The honorable member can only explain any matter upon which he has been misunderstood.

Mr KELLY - Anybody who cares to look at the questions which I asked to-day will fail to find in them the slightest mention of that particular officer in any connexion whatsoever. The reason why I asked the questions in regard to this particular examination was that, about a week ago, an officer - a friend of mine - who is in no way connected either with Colonel Bridges or any of the claimants for the position of Inspector-General, mentioned that in England there --vas an examination' held for positions in the higher branches of the service, and suggested that the papers might be sent out here, so that local officers might undergo the same examination. So much for the unworthy insinuation of the Minister that my questions were addressed to him in the interests of a particular officer.
