Mr WATSON (BLAND, NEW SOUTH WALES) (Prime Minister) - Any requests for information -as to whether another trip is necessary in order to enable honorable members to inspect portions of territory suggested .for the site of the Federal Capital should be addressed to the Minister of Home Affairs. I can only say with regard to other points referred to in the honorable and learned member's questions, that I am not surprised to hear that there has been snow at Tumut. I do not know that that fact can be considered a disqualification of any place. I am not at all astonished to find that there has- been boisterous weather in New South Wales, seeing that we have also experienced it here lately.
