8. Mr. F. HALL
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies if the annual Report on the working of the Defence Act of Australia has been issued and, if so, when; and whether he has taken steps to obtain a copy of the Report?
§ The SECRETARY of STATE for the COLONIES (Mr. Harcourt)
A copy of the Report of the Minister for Defence of the Commonwealth of Australia on the progress of Universal Military Training to the 30th June, 1912 was placed in the Library of the House at the beginning of last December. Copies of any further similar reports will be forwarded to me in the ordinary course as and when they are laid before the Commonwealth Parliament and will also be placed in the Library.
