Mr POYNTON (GREY, SOUTH AUSTRALIA) asked the Minister for Home and Territories, upon notice-

1.   What was the total amount paid to the Administrator of the Northern Territory for travelling expenses since Mr. Gilruth received his original appointment?

2.   What were the duties of the Administrator during the ten or eleven months of last year that he remained in Melbourne?

3.   Is not the £500 that the Administrator receives, in addition, to his salary of £1,750, for the purpose of entertaining distinguished visitors to the Northern Territory?

4.   If so, how much was spent in that way last year, seeing that the Administrator was nearly the whole year in Melbourne?
