Senator BOSWELL (Leader of the National Party of Australia) (3.37 p.m.) —I want to join the debate briefly to point out a few facts. In the seat of Kennedy—a marginal Labor seat—$416,000 was spent on grants. To prop up the seat of Hinkler, held by a very unpopular member, the funding was $332,400 compared with funding for the seat of Wide Bay of $65,000.

The PRESIDENT —Order! The time allotted for the debate has expired.

  Question resolved in the affirmative.
