Mr BRENNAN (BATMAN, VICTORIA) - Is the Prime Minister in a position to say whether any communications in writing passed between his immediate predecessor and the Governor-General in relation to the change of Government; can he inform the House of the terms of the advice then tendered to the Governor-General, the circumstances which resulted in the Leader of the Opposition not being consulted in regard to the formation of a new Government, and also the circumstances leading up to the right honorable gentleman being sent for by the Governor-General? In accordance with the existing constitutional practice, as I understand it, will he make available for public information all communications of a public character relating to the formation of the new Government and the passing out of the Government which preceded it?
