Mr GALVIN (KINGSTON, SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - Did the Prime Minister receive an invitation to the " Meet the Teams " Canada Cup dinner, held in Melbourne last Monday, which was attended by representatives of 29 nations? Is it correct that this is the first time in the history of the Canada Cup that the head of the Government of the host nation has not attended the official opening? Finally, would it not have been appropriate that the Prime Minister, if he himself could not attend that dinner, should have accepted an invitation for one of his senior Ministers to attend and represent him, as the organizers thought it was a great opportunity to foster international goodwill?
