Mr MENZIES - If the honorable member for East Sydney is really anxious to find out something about this matter, I will try to find out something myself. I was under the impression that the honorable members with, I think, singular enterprise, had the opportunity, through the courtesy of another nation, of being transported to the Antarctic.

Mr Curtin - For life?

Mr MENZIES - No, the honorable member for Kingsford-Smith need not feel touchy about this one. But I will withdraw the word " transported " in deference to him and say that the honorable members had the opportunity of being moved to the vicinity of the South Pole. I thought it a very spirited enterprise. I am jolly glad I was not there myself, but they appear to have enjoyed their visit and have come back With characteristic vigour.
