Mr SPEAKER - This difficulty could, I think, be overcome by agreement with the Government. Technically, until Parliament authorizes the printing of a paper it cannot be printed, although we know that, in practice, papers have been printed before presentation to Parliament. However, if the point is taken, documents of that kind cannot be printed until Parliament gives leave to do so. The motion for the printing of the document referred to by the. Leader of the Opposition (Mr. Menzies) is still on the notice-paper, and until it is disposed of leave cannot be given for the printing to be done. I cannot see any way of getting over the difficulty other than theoneI have suggested.

Question resolved in the affirmative.
