Mr SNEDDEN (BRUCE, VICTORIA) - My question is directed to the Prime Minister. Yesterday at his Press conference he was asked whether a consolidated list of interdepartmental committees had been prepared and given to him. In answer he said that he had forgotten. I ask him now: Has a consolidated list of interdepartmental committees been prepared? If so, will he table that list? If it has not been prepared, will he give an instruction that it should be prepared and give an undertaking that he will table such a consolidated list of interdepartmental committees?

Mr WHITLAM - I did say I could not remember whether I had ordered a list of departmental committees to be prepared or whether it had been prepared. I have not checked since. I believe that if it was prepared it would certainly be many months out of date. I do not remember ever having seen such a list. Did I say that I had ordered it to be prepared? If so, it was at the beginning of the year.
