Mr MENZIES - I can assure the honormember that his suggestion does not fall on unreceptive ears. I remember that when I was the Attorney-General of Australia we took steps to change the name of this Territory in which we now are located from the Federal Capital Territory to the Australian Capital Territory, which is in line with what the honorable member has in mind. This Territory has been known as the Australian Capital Territory ever since. I would not like to say off-hand what would be involved in making some formal change of the kind to which the honorable member has referred, but I will certainly have a look at the matter.
