Senator McGREGOR (South AustraliaVice President of the Executive Council) . - The Government and the Senate ought to be much obliged to Senator Chataway for bringing this . matter before us. We are certainly desirous of securing economy where that can be done without interfering with efficiency. As the honorable senator has suggested, however, it would be impossible for me to point out how a remedy might be effected. His remarks will be brought before the ActingTreasurer, and submitted to the Government Printer. An explanation will be called for. When we get to the Federal Capital, and have our own printing office under our own management, I trust that such duplication will be remedied ; and I would. ask honorable senators to: expedite business in. order that we may secure that object as soon as possible.

Proposed vote agreed to.

Divisions 41 to 51 (The Department of Trade and Customs), £57,981.
