Senator PEARCE - Arising out of the Minister's answer, I should like to inquire whether it is not a fact that on the Privy Council appeal Mr. Wise was sent to England, whilst the other barristers were not?

Senator Millen - Is the honorable senator surprised at Mr. Wise's moderation?

Senator CLEMONS - As far as I know, it is a fact that Mr. Wise was sent to England.

Senator DE LARGIE (WESTERN AUSTRALIA) - I should like to inquire whether the Mr. Starke mentioned in the Minister's reply is identical with the gentleman who is reported in today's newspapers - both the Argus and the Age - as having said yesterday that others than lawyers may do with the public funds whatever they like?

Senator CLEMONS - I am quite unable to identify Mr. Starke with any one mentioned in to-day's newspapers.
