Senator McGREGOR (South Australia) (Vice-President of the Executive Council) . - As Senator St. Ledger has indicated, this vote represents part of a sum which is applied to a fund to be paid to distressed authors, or to the relatives of deceased authors who have done notable literary work in Australia. I hope that by the time the honorable senator requires anything of this description a larger amount will be available. Joking apart, I may add that the Government would appreciate it very much if Senator St. Ledger had less to say, and wrote a great deal more.The amount voted last year was £700, of which £570 was spent.
