Mr BARNES (MCPHERSON, QUEENSLAND) (Minister for Territories) - 1 know of no instance in which there is a possible extension of the long term pastoral leases that the honorable member has mentioned. If the honorable member cares to place this question on the notice paper, I shall then be able to give him fuller details in reply to his earlier question. I had in mind a committee - I am not sure of its membership - which is examining our policy on coastal plains land. As the honorable member realises, there is a considerable area in respect of which leases are falling due for renewal. We are assessing the proper policy that should be adopted when we deal with this country. I repeat that, if the honorable member puts his question on the notice paper, I shall be able to give him a full answer.
