The N.S.W. Government have decided to establish a beer garden in Government
House grounds, on similar lines to those so popular in certain parts of Europe (locality censored), at a cost of about £20,000.
PREMIER: “We’ll have to sell a lot of Beer to wipe off this £20,000, Car.!”
MINISTER FOR BEER (light-heartedly): “Oh that’s simple. Just make beer-drinking compulsory!”
