Mr E G WHITLAM (WERRIWA, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I ask a question of the Minister representing the Minister for Administrative Services. Now that the High Court has declared for the second time that certain sections of the Representation Act are null and void and that the original sections of the Constitution still apply, and since there are no proposed referendums to alter those sections, what steps has the Government taken to determine the number of members in this House to which each State is entitled and to undertake the redistribution of electorates which the High Court has declared must take place in the lifetime of this Parliament?
