Senator MILLEN - My colleague informs me that he has only one official copy of the treaty, which, however, is published in Hertslet's Treaties, obtainable in the Library. Under the circumstances, the honorable senator may not desire to have a copy laid on the table.

Senator MAUGHAN - Arising out of that answer, I shall be glad if the Minister will be good enough to have a copy of that treaty incorporated in the proceedings of the Senate.

Senator MILLEN - I would point out to the honorable senator that the treaty may be seen in the Parliamentary Library attached to this building. To table it here merely for the purpose of again having it printed would incur quite unnecessary expense. It is already a public document, and is obtainable in the Library a few yards distant from this chamber.

Senator Rae - But an honorable senator cannot obtain a copy of it.

Senator MILLEN - He can obtain a typed copy of it. It would involve unnecessary expense to duplicate public documents that are already available.
