Mr SPEAKER - With reference to the request made by the honorable member for Illawarra last night, I have to say that files of all Bills were kept in the chamber for each member for a number of years. It was found that many members did not use them, preferring to avail themselves of the copies of Bills placed on the table. Owing to the shortage of printing paper, it was arranged that fifteen files of Bills be placed in various parts of the chamber in lieu of supplying one file to each member. This has resulted in a considerable saving in printing paper, as well as in the expense of keeping the files in repair. There is still a serious shortage of printing paper, and every effort is made to keep the number of documents printed down to a minimum without inconveniencing members. A file of Bills will be supplied to any member who desires to have them and notifies the Clerk accordingly.
