Mr WHEELER (MITCHELL, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I preface my question to the Treasurer by referring to the announcement he made this afternoon of appointees to comprise the Commonwealth Committee on Taxation. Without reflecting on those chosen, I ask the Treasurer whether there was, or is, any reason why a member or members of this House should not have been appointed to the committee. Does he not agree that it would be some recognition of this Parliament if a member of the Government and a member of the Opposition were appointed to the committee? Is he disposed to give this proposal consideration, having in mind the signal service which the honorable member for Petrie performed on a similar committee and also the talent available on both sides of this House for this purpose?
