    A SEVEN-MAN DELEGATION FROM THE AUSTRALIAN FEDERAL PARLIAMENT IN CANBERRA HAVE SPENT FOUR DAYS TOURING MALAWI.

    THE DELEGATION WAS LED BY MR. FRED CHANEY, A FORMER MINISTER OF THE AUSTRALIAN NAVY, AND A WARTIME RAAF PILOT. THERE WERE FOUR OTHER MEMBERS OF THE AUSTRALIAN HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES, MR. DOBIE, MR. COURTNAY, MR. GREEN AND MR. JESSOP AND THERE WERE TWO SENATORS MR. POUSE AND MR. WHEELDON.

    THEY SAW A TEA PLANTATION AND SAMPLED SOME OF THE BREW. TEA IS SOMETHING WHICH DOES NOT GROW IN AUSTRALIA IN COMMERCIAL QUANTITIES.

    THE DELEGATION WHICH REPRESENTED BOTH SIDES OF PARLIAMENT. ALSO SAW SOME MALAWI SHEEP. THAT'S SOMETHING AUSTRALIANS DO KNOW SOMETHING ABOUT. THERE ARE MORE SHEEP IN AUSTRALIA THAN THERE ARE PEOPLE.
