Mr BEALE (PARRAMATTA, NEW SOUTH WALES) (Minister for Supply) - It is true that the Rum Jungle treatment plant will be opened by the Prime Minister on. the 17th September. This will be an. historic event, and I think it proper that members, of this House should have an opportunity to witness it. It is proposed that an allparty delegation of, I think, about ten members, representing both the: Government and the Opposition, shall go. to Rum Jungle for the event..


Mr NELSON (NORTHERN TERRITORY, NORTHERN TERRITORY) - Not enough.


Mr BEALE - I remind the House that there are- other people in Australia besides members of this Parliament who may wish to go, to Bum. Jungle for the occasion, and I also point out that the expense of trips, of this sort is. considerable. However,, the Government will certainly send a representative delegation of members from both sides of the House to Bum Jungle for the ceremony.
