To have a properly balanced Commonwealth Parliament it would be  advantageous to have at least three States across the northern parts of the

continent, each with representation in the Federal House. It was with that end in view that the Premiers of Queensland and Western Australia waited  on the Prime Minister to secure the appointment of a Northern Australia  Development Committee which has been formed and is now planning for  the development of the North. My Advisers are prepared to recommend the establishment of additional

States in Queensland when as a result of their developmental policy, the new States will have a reasonable degree of financial and economic

stability.2
