  That there be laid on the table, before the adjournment of the Senate on 29 June 1994:

(a)a copy of the latest edition of the parliamentary handbook, whatever its formal title, in use in each Commonwealth department, being the handbook or manual which sets out the procedures to be followed by the officers of that department when their work involves contact with either or both Houses of the Parliament, or with parliamentarians; and

(b)if such a handbook or manual is not in existence in the department, any departmental guidelines or directions, over and above the Government Guidelines for Official Witnesses before Parliamentary Committees and Related matters, November 1989, which outlines procedures for informing parliamentarians about taxpayer funded grants and initiatives.
