Mr PERKINS (EDEN-MONARO, NEW SOUTH WALES) (Minister without portfolio administering External Territories) - So far as I am aware, no steps have been taken to send Mr. Hill to Darwin, for the reason that it is not deemed necessary to do so. No government employees are involved in the strike which has taken place; they are honorably fulfilling the conditions agreed to by them in December last. The men who are on strike are working for contractors. I understand that a conference is being arranged with a view to their differences being setttled.
