Mr PETERS (SCULLIN, VICTORIA) - If you, Mr. Speaker, have been in the Queen's Hall, Melbourne - the entrance to the Victorian State Parliament House - you will have been Impressed by its dignity and elegance, largely contributed to by the few but magnificent works of art that adorn its walls. Will you consult with the President of another place with the object of replacing the portraits, good and bad. of famous and not so famous, handsome and not so handsome, politicians that adorn the walls of the King's Hall by some few dignified and elegant paintings depicting the beauties of the Australian countryside? If you do not do this in time, you will be confronted, probably, by your own portrait glaring at you from the walls.
