Mr CROSS (BRISBANE. QLD) - I address a question to the Prime Minister. I refer to the death in England recently of Professor Frank Debenham, a distinguished Australian Antarctic explorer and geographer. Does not the right honorable gentleman feel that Australia should be able to honour her distinguished sons and daughters for their services, without resort to the titles and honours of the United Kingdom? Will he consider the establishment of an appropriate Australian award?
