Mr WILKINSON (MORETON, QUEENSLAND) asked the Prime Minister, upon notice -

1.   Whether a working man, say in Queensland, who desires to obtain a patent under the Commonwealth law, will be in as good a position as one who resides in Melbourne, or wherever the seat of government may be?

2.   If a dispute arose regarding his patent rights will itbe necessary for a Queenslander to journey to the seat of government to fight his cause ?

3.   Is it intended, in the working of the Patents Act, to provide for the distribution of all necessary information relating to patents granted, in all the more important centres within the Commonwealth, so that persons desiring to inspect the same may be able to do so without journeying to the seat of government ?
