Mr BLAIN (NORTHERN TERRITORY) - I rise to a personal explanation. Yesterday I addressed a question to the Minister for the Interior concerning a lessee in the Northern Territory who already had a lease of 10,600 square miles, .and secured an additional area of more than 400 square miles on a 42 years' lease. On consulting the schedule I find that the additional area is 825 square miles. In reply to my question, the Minister said - and I quote from a Ilansard proof -

The lease of Alexandra Downs became possible because the people of the Northern Territory lacked any representation in. this Parliament.
