Mr SPEAKER - I have received a copy of the resolution passed by the Legislative Council for the Territory of Papua and New Guinea on the occasion of a presentation of a President's chair by the Commonwealth Parliament. The resolution was as follows: -

We, the Members of the Legislative Council for the Territory of Papua and New Guinea, in Council assembled, express our thanks to the Senate and the House of Representatives of the Parliament of the Commonwealth of Australia for the Chair which they have presented to this Council for the use of its President in the new Chamber.

We were highly honoured to receive the Delegation by whose hand the presentation was made and extend to its members a warm welcome to this Territory.

We warmly reciprocate the greetings brought to this Council from the Commonwealth Parliament, and request the Members of the Delegation to convey to their colleagues our assurances that the Chair, so generously given to this Council, will long be treasured as an historic possession
