Mr MENZIES - Mr. Speaker, I was invited. I had, at an earlier stage, a little to do with helping to have the Canada

Cup competition in Australia, so that I cannot be accused of a lack of interest. But 1 hardly saw why I should have to go away from a most important annual conference of my own party organization, particularly in relation to an event to which my Ministers were invited also, when, I am happy to say, I was more than adequately represented in Melbourne by the most famous sportsman in this Parliament - the honorable member for Corio. Everybody was delighted with him, and I am perfectly certain that they did not miss me at all.
