Mr CURTIN (Fremantle) (Prime Minister) . - in reply - Having regard to the position abroad, it is not easy at this stage to indicate the date on which Parliament will be called together. I have in mind the fact that the work of Parliament will be facilitated if the joint committees are enabled to conclude their inquiries so that their reports can be considered by Cabinet and, if necessary, made the basis of proposed legislation. I have reason to believe that the work of those committees has been considerably handicapped recently by the irregularity of the sittings of Parliament. They have not been able to make a continuous investigation of their respective subjects. I expect that in the ordinary course of events we may come together somewhere about the middle of March.

Question resolved in the affirmative.
