Mr WARD - J desire to ask the Minister for Labour and National Service a question. Is it a fact that, in November last, the Minister represented the Government al a dinner in Melbourne arranged by the proprietors of Wirth's circus, at which two lions, George and Phillip, and three lion cubs, were present also? Is it a fact also that, while the guests were having cocktails in another room, George and Phillip broke their training routine, upset tables and scattered cutlery and glassware, thereby delaying the dinner for half an hour? Is it further a fact, as has been reported, that a lion cub disgraced itself while being photographed in the arms of the Victorian Premier?
