Mr WHITE (Balaclava) .- This clause provides that the accounts of the commission shall be subject to inspection and audit at least once yearly by the Auditor-General of the Commonwealth, and the Auditor-General shall report to the Minister the result of each inspection and audit. But it seems to me that the Auditor-General will audit only 12s. of the listeners' licence-fee.

Mr Fenton - That is not so. The Auditor-General's report will cover the whole ground.

Mr WHITE - Do I take it that the whole of the 24s. will be audited?

Mr Fenton - Yes. All Commonwealth funds are audited by him.

Clause agreed to.

Clause 33-

The commission shall, as soon as possible after the expiration of each financial year, prepare a profit and loss statement and balance-sheet in the form approved by the Minister . . .
