Mr ANTHONY (RICHMOND, NEW SOUTH WALES) - Prior to the outbreak of World War II., facilities were granted to honorable members to visit the territories of the Commonwealth, notably New Guinea, in order to acquaint themselveswith conditions there, because the territories have no representative in this Parliament. As I have received many complaints that, under the present administration, it is impossible for planters and others to develop the external territories, will the Prime Minister restore those travel facilities? When that is done, honorable members may visit the territories and obtain the facts first-hand. If the right honorable gentleman decides to restore those facilities, will he inform me when it will be possible for members of this Parliament from all political parties to visit the territory ?
