Mr Whitlam m asked the Prime Minister, upon notice -

1.   On what dates and subjects have ad hoc committees been set up by the Parliament or the Government in the last ten years?

2.   On what dates were reports received from the committees?

3.   What legislative or administrative action has been taken on the reports?

Mr Menzies - The answer to the honorable member's questions is as follows: - 1 to 3. The compilation of a list of all ad hoc committees set up by the Parliament or the Government over ten years and a statement of the results which have flowed from them, would require a great amount of work including consultation with all departments and authorities. If the honorable memberis interested in the activities of any specific committee or of committees in any particular field, I shall be glad to arrange for information to be furnished to him.
