Senator GRANT (NEW SOUTH WALES) - I ask the Minister representing the Minister of Home Affairs whether reports are received monthly of the work done at the Federal Capital, and, if so, whether he will lay them on the table of the Senate. If such reports are not received, will he take steps to furnish the Senate, monthly, with information as to the work which is being done there, and the amount that is being expended upon it?

Senator RUSSELL - Reports are received almost daily from the Federal Capital, and it has been the practice to publish them in the Schedule whichis issued by the Department quarterly. But, if there is a general desire on the part of 'honorable senators that these reports should be published more frequently, I have little doubt that the necessary arrangements can be made.
