Mr FISHER (Wide Bay) . - I think that the honorable member for Wentworth has made a most unworthy attempt to prejudice one of the proposed sites for the Federal Capital. The merits of a site are not to be discounted by making a statement regarding its inaccessibility based upon a telegram, which is the outcome, not of anything done by the Commonwealth, but of circumstances, which are not very creditable to those who are responsible for them.

Question resolved in the affirmative.
