Senator OGDEN (Tasmania) .- I wish to bring before honorable senators adisability under which members of both Houses suffer. When we sat in Melbourne honorable senators could read in the morning newspapers an account of the business which had been transacted in another place on the previous day. Here we are not aware of what has been done until we can obtain a copy of either a Sydney or a Melbourne newspaper. That isa disadvantage to members of the Senate, and, possibly, also to members of the House of Representatives. Arrangements ought to be made for the publication each morning pf the proceedings in the House of Representatives. Frequently one does not have an opportunity to read the newspapers when they arrive, and consequently is not kept properly informed of the' business that has been transacted in another place.
