Mr CALWELL (MELBOURNE, VICTORIA) - -In view of' the importance of New Guinea to the defence of Australia, and in view of the significance of the happenings in New Guinea, will the Prime Minister arrange either to visit that area himself or for one of his service Ministers to go there in order that the Government might be more fully advised of the actual position in that battle zone? Will he follow the practice of the British Governmnent in that regard - the British Government has a representative of the British Cabinet in Cairo in the person of Mr. R.i G. Casey - by providing for one of his junior Ministers to be stationed in New' Guinea while the present conflict there lasts?
