Mr SPEAKER (Hon Sir Elliot Johnson (LANG, NEW SOUTH WALES) - The. suggestion of the right honorable the Treasurer does not appeal to me. I do not think it is any part of the duties of the Speaker to disclose information which may be in his possession concerning the private affairs, financial or otherwise, of honorable members. Such matters, so far as they may be known to him, are regarded as confidential. If information is desired it should be sought elsewhere ; and the Treasurer is, in my judgment, the proper authority to whom any inquiries on the subject should be addressed.

Mr Tudor - Do you think, sir, that the Treasurer should answer the question?
