Senator CLEMONS - The answer is-

In the opinion of the Government the time and expense involved in the lengthy personal inspections which the Commission have been making in the Territory, and which they proposed to continue for a considerable period, are not necessary or justifiable. The Commission have, therefore, been requested to furnish their report as soon as possible.

Senator BLAKEY - Arising out of the answer, can the Honorary Minister inform the Senate what is the position of the members of the Commission so far as their engagement or appointment by the Government is concerned ? Will that be terminated, or will they be in a state of indecision ?
