Mr WARD (EAST SYDNEY, NEW SOUTH WALES) (Minister for External Territories) - If the Pacific Islands Monthly has stated a fact, it has done so for the first time. The Department of External Territories has decided to expend £118,000 on the construction of a native village in close proximity to Port Moresby. The Government was obliged to rehabilitate these natives, who had been disturbed by military operations. Their old villages were destroyed, and we thought that, while we were on the job, we would do it well, and give them a model village.
