Mr SPEAKER -I have made inquiries as to what occurred in the private dining room. I have been told that there was an occasion during which a person, who apparently was an attractive person, came out of what appeared to be a cake but what in fact was a tea box and that during an entertainment which was being offered she suffered a certain misfortune with the upper part of her clothing. I have read rather lurid reports in the Press this morning stating that people present blanched with horror. No reports have been made to me indicating that they did blanch in horror, but it was reported to me that they were dissatisfied that that sort of entertainment should occur in Parliament House. I agree; it is not the sort of entertainment which should occur in Parliament House. I wish the House to know that if it happens again it is likely to be punishable by transportation for 7 years to the colonies.
