Mr MAHON (COOLGARDIE, WESTERN AUSTRALIA) - In the absence of the Treasurer, 1 wish to ask the Prime Minister a question without notice. In the recently circulated statement of receipts and expenditure for the quarter ending 36th September, there appears under the heading " Treasurer's Advance Account," sub; heading " Defence," the item -

Cost of entertaining the Due d'Abruzzi and staff, £17 4s.

I wish to know to what that item refers.
