Mr ROBINSON (WANNON, VICTORIA) - I desire to ask the Prime Minister whether it is a fact, as stated in the Age of Friday last, that the Commonwealth Government is making a claim upon the Victorian Government for £1 2,000 odd forvarious services rendered by Post and Telegraph officers; further, whether it is a fact that this claim would not have been made had it not been for some remarks made by the Premier of Victoria. I trust that the Minister will be able to enlighten us upon this point, because it is distinctly stated that the Government are playing a game of tit-for-tat, and that the claim would not have been made but for their resentment of Mr. Bent's criticisms.
