Mr HUGHES (BENDIGO, VICTORIA) (Prime Minister) - There has been placed in my hands a newspaper extract stating that Mr. Ronald had approached the Colonial Office and had subsequently been advised to approach His Majesty by way of petition of grace, and that His Majesty had stated that he would communicate his answer, through the GovernorGeneral, to the Commonwealth Government. I am not aware whether His Majesty has done so, but will ascertain from the Governor-General ; and, if there is any correspondence, I shall ask His Excellency whether I may be permitted to lay it on the table of the House.
