Mr BAMFORD (HERBERT, QUEENSLAND) - I wish to know from the Prime Minister whether there is any truth in the paragraph appearing in the morning newspapers of Saturday last, to the effect that a fresh contract has been entered into by the Commonwealth Government and Messrs. Burns, Philp, and Company for the conveyance of mails between Australia and Papua. If there is, I should like to know whether tenders were called for the service in the ordinary way, and whether the Prime Minister will place all the papers on the table for the information of honorable members?
