Mr HAROLD HOLT - I regret that I have not yet had the opportunity of reading in full the statement to which the honorable member has referred. One item did attract my attention, however. That was the reference made by the Governor, in the speech prepared for him by the New South Wales Cabinet, to the fact that unemployment in New South Wales was at the lowest point at which it has ever been since 1956.

On other occasions, I have noted with some appreciation the glowing references made by the Premier of New South Wales to the degree of prosperity which is being enjoyed by that State; and I am glad to feel that the increased contributions that we have made by our votes in this Parliament to the financial resources of the State have assisted in its development. Whether those views coincide with the views held by the Premier's colleagues in this Parliament 1 think would depend on which colleagues one chose. It is not easy to find any unanimity of views among members of the Opposition.
