Mr CROUCH - In last night's Melbourne Herald the following paragraph was published : -

The Commonwealth Auditor-General is still dissatisfied with the manner in which the Treasurer's accounts are presented. Next week he will meet the Parliamentary Public Accounts Committee at Canberra to urge again that the financial statement should bc prepared in such a way as to enable them to be understood by the public.

Will the Prime Minister consider the advisability of suggesting to the AuditorGeneral that his criticisms should be communicated to the Government departments concerned before they appear in the press ?

Mr E RILEY (SOUTH SYDNEY, NEW SOUTH WALES) - Why not make him transfer to Canberra?
