Senator BROWN (Queensland) .. - A sum of £250 has been set aside for the purpose of encouraging gliding. A few weeks ago the Leader of the Senate (Senator Pearce) informed me that a larger sum would be spent in this connexion this year. Can the right honorable gentleman supply the committee with some information in this regard?

Senator Sir GEORGEPEARCE (Western Australia - Minister for External Affairs) [10:21] . - I regret that I am not in a position to inform Senator Brown of the amount that was available for gliding last year ; but this year a sum of £250 has been voted for this purpose. Speaking from memory, the total amount set aside last year for gliding was not applied for, because a number of clubs had not registered. In view of the fact that in the interim they have become registered, it is anticipated that the full amount will be expended this year.
