Mr SCULLIN - I have no statement to make that would convey further information than is obtainable from the reading of the newspapers. Any comments I could offer would not assist honorable members. The position is not a very happy one, but we are hoping that some improvement will soon be noted.

Mr Beasley - Can the Prime Minister get information through the League of Nations ?

Mr SCULLIN - I get special communications frequently. If they contained additional information, I would be very glad to furnish it to the House.

Mr Eldridge - Has the Government asked for that information ?

Mr SCULLIN - I have a certain amount of information,but I am not going to make a statement at the request of honorable members unless I deem it wise to do so.
