Senator DALY (South Australia) (Vice-President of the Executive Council) (3:26 AM) - In 1925 the Commonwealth approved of an annual grant of £10,000 for the administration of New Guinea, to be used in the interests of the native races. Each year a grant of a similar amount has been made available. The money has been expended in connexion with the medical treatment of natives, for their instruction in improved methods of agriculture and on other services for the benefit of the natives. At the close of the financial year 1927-28 there was an unexpended balance of £3,405 5s. 6d., and the amount available for the following year was £13,304 5s. 6d. At the end of that year there was an unexpended balance of £1,800 which, with the grant of £5.000, the sum available for this year, will be £6,800.
