Senator PEARCE (WESTERN AUSTRALIA) (Minister for Defence) - I have been informed that such a report appeared, although I have not yet seen it. I shall be glad if the honorable senator will let me have his copy. But I would like, commenting on the part to which he referred, to make a statement now. It is rather significant that, at his own request, I gave the ex-Governor of German New Guinea an interview, and that he made no such complaint to me when he was in Australia. I shall have inquiries made into the matter.
