Senator McGREGOR (South. Australia) (Vice-President of the Executive Council) . - I have already stated that I. hope that if any honorable senators desire during the recess to visit Papua, and to inquire into the condition of the Possession, the Government will afford them every facility. It is only fair, seeing that Papua and the

Northern Territory are Territories of the Commonwealth, and that we are spending large sums of money upon them, that the Government should put means at the disposal of members of Parliament to take as much interest as possible in their welfare. I hope that some honorable senators will take advantage of the opportunity to visit Papua.
