Senator PALTRIDGE (Western Australia) (Minister for Defence) . - No, the Committee aims to make its report and to wind itself up towards the end of the year. 1 have great pleasure in informing the honorable senator from Sydney that the Chifley Memorial, appropriately enough, is to be erected in the heart of Sydney in Chifley Square. The Commonwealth has agreed to provide £5,000 towards the cost of erecting an appropriate fountain in Chifley Square, which is the open area created by the intersection of Hunter and Elizabeth Streets and the Elizabeth Street extension. The area was recently so named by the Sydney City Council in memory of the late right honorable J. B. Chifley, the former Prime Minister.

Senator DameANNABELLE RANKIN (Queensland) [9.24]. - I refer to Division No. 400, sub-division 4, item 13, which relates to the proposed appropriation of £14,000 for the Queen Elizabeth II Fellowship Scheme. We are all interested in this scheme and are very pleased about it. Can the Minister give some information as to how it is progressing? I refer also to subdivision 5, item 22, which relates to the proposed appropriation of £90,000 for the Australian-American Educational Foundation, which appears to be a new appropriation. I should like some information on that.
