Mr ARCHIE CAMERON (BARKER, SOUTH AUSTRALIA) (Postmaster-General) - I refer to a picture which appeared in the Adelaide Advertiser of the 24th May depicting the Minister for Information addressing a meeting of the workers at the factory of Richards Brothers Limited. Can the Minister explain why it was necessary to insert between him and his audience a very strong iron fence? Was it " to prevent him from being pelted with something more lethal than pennies, or Was it because Adelaide people had seen a Sydney newspaper cartoon and could not imagine the "cageminded" Minister addressing any gathering except from a cage?
