Mr HUGHES - I should like to ask whether it would be possible to get a clear statement of the wages, grants, allowances, or whatever they may be called, that are paid to each officer pf the House, so that when we do get into Supply, and have an opportunity to discuss the matter, we may have ail the facts before us.

Mr SPEAKER - That can very easily be done. The proper course in such case would be for a request to come from the Prime Minister, as the head of the Government, to the Presiding Officer for the information, and then the Prime Minister, or Treasurer, as the case may be, would be in a position to lay the necessary information before the House. That would be a more regular way of procedure, and I should be pleased to supply the information required.
