Mr BLAIN (NORTHERN TERRITORY) - I direct the attention of the Minister for the Interior to the fact that native policy in the Northern Territory appears to be following two lines of thought. The first favours action along lines suggested by anthropologists, which Dr. Donald Thompson describes as " preserving native culture ", and the other, the saving of the natives from barbarism along the lines followed by missionary organizations. Has the Minister for the Interior given due consideration to the views of the Bishop of Darwin to the effect that the natives should be saved from their barbarism, which is described as "culture " by Dr. Donald Thompson?
