Mr DEAKIN - The answers to the honorable member's questions are as follow : -

1.   The fact that the General Council of New Caledonia passed a resolution in favour of transportation was, in common with all other public announcements on this subject, duly observed by the Government. I am not aware what efforts, if any, have been made in France with a view to recommending convict transportation.

2.   The Government have made various communications on this subject, but have no reason to suppose that transportation is likely to be resumed.
