Mr HAMER (ISAACS, VICTORIA) - My question is addressed to the Prime Minister. I ask: When Her Majesty the Queen decides who shall be her representative as Governor of an Australian State is she acting in her capacity as Queen of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland or in her capacity as Queen of Australia? Does the Statute of

Westminster affect this position? When she is acting as Queen of Australia, are her appropriate advisers the Australian Government or the British Government?
