Mr BADMAN (GREY, SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - Will the Prime Minister state whether, as reported in the Adelaide Stock and Station Journal, of the 6th May last, the Government Whip, the honorable member for Griffith (Mr. Conelan), visited South Australia in order to find out why conditions in that State were so different from those in other States that horse racing had to be banned in South Australia, although it could be permitted in other States? If the report be correct, to whom did the honorable member furnish a report on his visit, and how was such visit connected with the furthering of the war effort?

Mr.CURTIN. - I am not in a position to say whether it was stated in a certain newspaper that the honorable member for Griffith had visited Adelaide for the purpose mentioned. The honorable member informed me that he intended to pay a visit to that city, and I see no reason why he should not visit any part of Australia that he thought proper. That is allI have to say on the matter.
