Senator PALTRIDGE - I think that, with respect, the honorable senator is in error in comparing the Australian Capital Territory Advisory Council with other local authorities in Australia. The situation in Canberra, of course, is one that stands completely apart from what might be regarded as the local authority set up which exists elsewhere in Australia. As to the effect of the motion passed by the House of Representatives, I have observed that the Minister for the Interior has indicated that he proposes now to refer the matter to Cabinet. Until such reference is made, I do not think I should say anything about the matter. Indeed, I am unable to do so.
