Senator HIGGS - I wish to ask the Minister of Defence, without notice, whether fie will lay on the table to-morrow a copy of the agreement having reference to the Pacific Islands Mail Service, or the draft of the agreement which the Government propose to make with Messrs. Burns,

Philp, and Co. ? I may say in explanation, that when I moved in the Senate that a copy of the contract be laid upon the table, I was told that the contract was not signed. I then asked that a copy of trie proposed contract be laid upon the table; and I am fearful that because I used the word "contract" somebody may say that a contract is not a contract until it is signed. I therefore ask for a copy of the draft of the proposed agreement.
