Senator KINGSMILL (WESTERN AUSTRALIA) - Arising from the answers given to my questions yesterday, will the Minister representing the Minister for Home and Territories (1) invite the Age newspaper to furnish, if it so desires, an explanation of the statement made in its columns in relation to the main entrance door of Parliament House at Canberra, and (2) will he endeavour to furnish, before Parliament adjourns, a reply to my question as to the proportion of imported and Australian timber used in the construction of Parliament House)

SenatorPEARCE. - I am afraid that the task suggested by the honorable senator in his first question is beyond the power of any Ministry.

Senator Kingsmill - An invitation could be issued.

SenatorPEARCE. - I issue that invitation now, publicly; but I cannot Bay that I expect a satisfactory response. I shall endeavour to expedite the supply of the information asked for in the honorable senator's second question.
