Mr WILKS (Dalle) - I indorse the remarks of the honorable member for Bland and I trust thatwe are now approaching a final settlement of the Capital Site question. A few days ago the honorable member for Parramatta asked the Prime Minister to place upon the table the correspondence which had Passed between the Premier of New South Wales and himself. We have been awaiting the production of that correspondence in order that we might deal with it. The new site proposed will, I believe prove to be a better one than that already selected, but I trust that if the matter is re-opened we shall not have another round of picnics with a view to enabling members to make a fresh inspection of the country. I hope that the proposed inspection will be final and that before the session ends we shall settle the question by the selection of a' site that will be acceptable alike to New South Wales and to the Commonwealth.

Sir William Lyne - Then it must he either at Tumut or on the Upper Murray.
