Mr WHITLAM (WERRIWA, NEW SOUTH WALES) - The Acting Prime Minister will be aware that debate is proceeding in another place on a motion to appoint a joint select committee of both Houses to investigate Commonwealth and State finances and functions. He wilt also appreciate that many honourable members favour such a committee, particularly if it is also charged with investigating the finances and functions of local government and semi-governmental authorities. 1 therefore ask whether the Government has decided to support this proposition in the other place or. if it is carried there without the Government's support, whether it has decided to support it when it conies down into this House.
