Mr SPEAKER - Are there any ministerial statements?

Mr Pollard - What will be done about this matter? It is an important matter and I ask you, Mr. Speaker, to inquire into it.

Mr SPEAKER - Very well.

Mr J R Fraser - I rise to order. May I ask what is the position when doubt is cast on the accuracy of a report as finally appearing in " Hansard "? Does the House, through you, Sir, have the power to call for the proof of the speech as originally presented to the member making it?

Mr SPEAKER - Order! The usual procedure is that any doubt or query in relation to the " Hansard " report is discussed with the " Hansard " department and if necessary with the presiding officers. It is unusual for a subject of this kind to be brought before the House for a decision. The matter raised by the honorable member for Lalor will receive attention.
