Senator COLLINGS - The answer to the first part of the honorable senator's question is that I was correctly reported. In reply to the remainder of his question, I have to inform him that the matter is continuously under serious review. The present congestion is inevitable, and is due to the greatly increased population of Canberra, on account not only of the natural increase but also the presence of a large number of temporary residents. Owing to the war situation, it is impossible to get new omnibuses in Australia or from other countries, and until new vehicles can be obtained those who travel in the present omnibuses, including mem.bers of Parliament, must suffer the general inconvenience which war conditions demand.
