Senator COLLINGS (QUEENSLAND) - Will the Minister representing the Prime Minister inform the Senate whether the honorable member for Henry (Mr. Coles) recently admitted that he was " guilty of a small deceit " in order to obtain £750 worth of dollars to enable him to travel from New Zealand to England ? Does the Government approve of the example set to Australia by a member of this Parliament in obtaining dollar exchangeby deceit? Would not the 3,000 odd dollars involved have been better expended on essential imports from the United States of America? Did the Commonwealth Government pay any part of the expenses incurred by Mr. Coles during his investigations in England on behalf of the Government?
