Mr POYNTON (GREY, SOUTH AUSTRALIA) (Minister for Home and Territories) - The answers to the honorable member's questions are as follow: -

1.   Yes. The Government decided that during the period of military occupation, and pending the receipt of the mandate to be issued to the Commonwealth Government for the future control of these possessions, no transfers of any interest in real estate, either leasehold or freehold, should be permitted.

2.   Not at present. This matter will receive consideration when the terms of the mandate are definitely settled.
