Mr LUCHETTI (MACQUARIE, NEW SOUTH WALES) - My question is directed to the Minister for Territories. In view of the recent political developments in the Territory of Papua and New Guinea, and iia West New Guinea where a partly elected and partly nominated Legislative Council has come into being for the first time, will the Minister take steps to see that an invitation is extended to representatives of the Legislative Council for Papua and New Guinea, the West New Guinea Council, the British Solomon Islands Protectorate and Samoa to visit this country and see at first hand the operation of a vigorous democracy and its parliamentary system?
