The PRESIDENT - I have to inform the Senate that TheirRoyal Highnesses, the Duke and Duchess of York, have been pleased to present to the Parliament a cigarette box for the Parliament House, Canberra. The box was handed to me by HisRoyal Highness on the occasion of the dinner held in his honour in Parliament House, Melbourne. On behalf of the Parliament I accepted it and expressed our appreciation of this very handsome gift which TheirRoyal Highnesses have been so graciously pleased to make on the occasion of their visit to Australia to proclaim the inauguration of the meetings of the Parliament of the Commonwealth at Canberra.
