Mr SCULLIN (Yarra) (Prime Minister) . - There are no Ministers on either committee. The Public Works Committee Act is certainly more elaborate than the Committee of Public Accounts Act. The latter seems to have been drafted hur- riedly, and, as a matter of fact, contains no provision for a quorum. Many provisions of the Public Works Committee Act are not to be found in the Public Accounts Act. However, as I did not feel inclined to overwork Parliament in regard to this legislation, I have brought down merely the essential things. I can assure the honorable member that there is no danger of Ministers going on cither of these committees.
