Senator KEATING - The answer to the honorable senator's question is as follows : -

Before the appeal to the Privy Council was set down for hearing the High Court of Australia came into existence, and, as the Commonwealth Government took the view that the High Court is the proper tribunal to decide the matter, the appeal to the Privy Council was allowed to lapse. It is open to any of the States to take action to test the matter.
