Senator CROFT (WESTERN AUSTRALIA) asked the Minister representing the Treasurer, upon notice -

In view of the remarks of the Right Honorable the Treasurer, Sir John Forrest, reported in the Age of 1st November, that, of the nineteen State Assembly seats in his electorate, none were won by Labour candidates at the recent election, is it the intention of that honorable member (seeing that he is a Minister in a Government supported by the Labour Party) to resign his seat in the Cabinet; or resign his parliamentary seat and contest the constituency to ascertain if his position in the Government meets with the approval of his constituents?
