The PRESIDENT - No. The affairs of the Library are handed over to the Library Committee just as the affairs of other branches of the Parliamentary services are entrusted to joint committees of both Houses.

Senator Sir GEORGE PEARCE - When the schedule to the Appropriation Bill is under consideration honorable senators will have ample opportunity on the vote for the Parliament, to air any grievances they may have relating to the library.

Senator DUNCAN - Seeing that no report is made to the Senate by the Library Committeeofficially, and that the most that honorable senators can get is a hearsay report, how will it be possible for us to discuss the matter intelligently on the Estimates?

The PRESIDENT - It will be possible for the honorable senator to discuss any matter relating to the Library in the manlier indicated by the Vice-President Executive Council. The honorable senator may also do so by asking questions or submitting a motion.
