Mr HARRISON (WENTWORTH, NEW SOUTH WALES) (Minister without portfolio, administering External Territories) - The roadway to which the honorable member refers was laid down by the former Administrator of New Guinea, General Wisdom. The present Administrator is now arranging for the re-conditioning and maintenance of that road. That is the work upon which the surveyors' gangs mentioned by the honorable member are now engaged. There is certainly no reason to suppose that, because that work is being carried out, Lae might ultimately be chosen as the new administrative capital site.
