Senator ARKINS (NEW SOUTH WALES) - Has the Government irrevocably decided to restrict the submission of designs to these three sculptors! Ifso, is it prepared to allow the Senate to express an opinion upon this important matter, seeing that an essential concomitant of art is that youth shall at least have freedom of expression?

Senator Sir GEORGE PEARCE - That the submission of sketches and models shall be confined to the three gentlemen whom I have named is the fi nal decision of the Government. I shall, however, place before the committee the suggestion that honorable senators be permitted to inspect the sketches and models when they are submitted to the Government.
