Senator BRANSON - I direct a question to the Minister representing the Minister for Supply. Has the attention of the Minister been drawn to the fact that the Minister for Supply has accepted an offer by the Premier of Western Australia, Mr. David Brand, to have Perth lit up when the United States satellite Gemini makes two orbits over Australia tonight? Will this space craft be passing over any other major capital cities in Australia or any other large towns? If so, have any offers been made by other Governments or authorities to light up their areas and so give some cheer to the brave astronauts, Virgil Grissom and John Young?
