Senator NEWLANDS (SOUTH AUSTRALIA) asked the Minister representing the Minister of External Affairs, upon notice -

1.   Have full reports of his trip yet been received from Captain Barclay, who recently travelled through the Northern Territory on an exploring and surveying expedition?

2.   If so, will they be made available to the public at once?

3.   If not, what steps is it intended to take, in order to obtain such reports?

4.   Have any reports on the Northern Territory been received from Mr. Waldron; if so, will they be made available to the public as early as possible?

Senator GARDINER - The answers are -

1.   No.

2.   See answer to No. 1.

3.   It is regretted that, although repeated efforts have been made to obtain a final report from Captain Barclay, he has not yet supplied it, and it is thought that it will not now be submitted.

4.   Yes, one which relates particularly to the Macdonnell Ranges and surrounding country, and compiled as a result of observations made by Mr. Waldron while a member of parties led by Captain Barclay and Messrs. Lawrence and Chalmers in 1911 and 1913 respectively. That document is available for inspection at the office of the Department.
