Mr SPENDER (WARRINGAH, NEW SOUTH WALES) - Has the attention of the Prime Minister been drawn to an incident that occurred in North Sydney in connexion with the registration of aliens, when Dutch and American citizens were subjected to the indignity of being herded with Germans and Italians? Will the honorable gentleman take steps to avoid a repetition of such an occurrence, and see that members of allied nationsare treated with the courtesy and respect that are due to them?

Mr.CURTIN.- This is the first intimation I have had of any such incident. I shall inquire into it, and if the facts are as has been stated, I shall endeavour to have the honorable gentleman's suggestion adopted.
