Administrative Work

Senator J V MACDONALD (QUEENSLAND) - Has the Leader of the Senate noticed a cablegram from Auckland, published in the Australian press, to the effect that while the New Zealand Parliament is in recess the members of the Labour party will bp given an opportunity to play their part in administrative work, and that the

Prime Minister of New Zealand had stated that the Government desired that every member available should be given an opportunity to share in that work? In view of the differences of opinion which have been apparent during the past week or two between the members of the parties supporting this Government will the Minister inform the Senate whether there is a possibility of similar action being taken by the Commonwealth Government in order to overcome such difficulties.

Senator Sir GEORGE PEARCE - I prefer to await the result of this interesting experiment in New Zealand.
