Senator PEARCE (Western Australia) . - If the Minister of Defence has not the information at present, will he ascertain whether any report has been received from the officer who, during the regime of the late Government, was to be sent to Papua to conduct investigations into the oil-fields there? The honorable senator, I think, will recognise that it is very important that we should be kept advised of any development in that regard. I would like him to ask the Minister of External Affairs if there are any reports in existence, and, if so, whether he will make them available to honorable senators?
