Mr REID - I shall endeavour to obtain more or less correct information as to the number of white persons in British New Guinea, and as to how they are distributed over the Territory. They might be so scattered that it would be difficult to bring into operation a provision such as the honorable member suggests. However, I shall endeavour to ascertain whether it is practicable to carry out his idea.

Clause postponed.

Clause 29 -

The presence of at least three members of the Legislative Council (including the LieutenantGovernor or the member presiding) shall be necessary to constitute a meeting of the Council for the exercise of its powers.
