Mr GROOM (DARLING DOWNS, QUEENSLAND) (Minister for Home Affairs) - The answers to the honorable and learned member's questions are as follow : -

1.   Yes.

2.   Yes. The honorable member is asked to postpone this question pending the consideration of the measure relating to life insurance now under the consideration of the Government.

3.   Because notwithstanding the express pro posal to limit insurance to Australian offices, it did not become law, and the intention of the Act, as passed, appears to be to enable any life insurance company to be prescribed, provided it is registered and carries on business in the Commonwealth.
