Mr FREETH (FORREST, WESTERN AUSTRALIA) (Minister for the Interior) - I cannot recall to mind who first made the suggestion that there should be late shopping hours in Canberra; but it was examined by a committee consisting of all parties of this Parliament. That committee made a recommendation to which effect was subsequently given. There can be no doubt - whatever the honorable member's views on this matter are - that the majority of people in this Territory at any rate thoroughly approve of the late shopping hours we now enjoy.
