Mr LESLIE (MOORE, WESTERN AUSTRALIA) - I wish to preface my question, which is directed to the Minister for the Interior, by assuring the honorable member for the Australian Capital Territory that I do not propose to trespass on his preserves. My question is the result of a challenge that was made after my recent comment in this chamber on Canberra affairs. I ask the Minister: Are there any conditions attaching to the provision by the Government of play centres in Canberra? If so, is it a fact that those conditions have been complied with by the lo:al residents in regard to such centres as those at North O'Connor; MacGillivray-street. Yarralumla: and Deakin? Is there any substance in the suggestion that the Government has failed to honour an undertaking to provide those play centres, thus breaking faith with Canberra residents who have fulfilled their obligations?
