Mr CHAPMAN (EDEN-MONARO, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I desire to know if the attention of the Minister for Home Affairs has been directed to a paragraph, published in the Age this morning with reference to tho report of the Federal Capital. Sites Commission, and if the statementtherein contained is correct 1

Sir WILLIAM LYNE - I saw the telegram to which the honorable memberrefers, and I waa very much surprised. I at once communicated with the Chairman of the Federal Capital Sites Commission, and) pointed out that, if the statements contained in the telegram wore true, the Commission had exceeded their duty. I received the-' following reply : - .

None of the Commissioners nor the Secretary has given the slightest information on the subject, of Capital Sites. The Commissioners read with-, the utmost surprise Senator Neild's statement in this .morning's Telegraph that he had learned. from an authoritative source that Carcoar-Garland has been selected.

Suggest corrections
