The Pamphlet Collection of Sir Robert Stout: Volume 50

Proposed Separation of Northern Queensland

Proposed Separation of Northern Queensland.

Mr. Griffith said: Mr. President,—I gave notice that I would to-day lay on the table certain correspondence with respect to the proposed separation of a portion of Northern Queensland from that colony. I do so because I believe that the matter is of general Australasian interest. Several important questions are involved in the proposed separation amongst them, the labour question, which affects Queensland especially, but it also affects in a minor degree some of the other colonics. That is a question upon which it is desirable that there should be a general public opinion throughout Australasia. And as this correspondence throws some light on the matter, I beg to lay it on the table, and move that it be printed.

Mr. Dickson seconded the motion.

Question put and passed.
