Senator GRANT (New South Wales) . - Senator Ogden has attempted on more than one occasion to discuss the report of the industrial delegation to America. The Leader of the Senate (Senator Pearce) has informed us that the report, laid on the table of the Senate on 3rd November last, contains certain errors. He tells us that it is now intended to reprint the document with the necessary alterations. I should like him to make a statement showing in what respect the report is defective and what alterations are proposed.

Senator Sir George Pearce - I have stated three times that some of the names of the commissioners were inserted in the wrong place. That fact was not discovered until the first pull of the report was received. The matter is still in type, and only those slight alterations will be necessary.

Senator GRANT - The corrections will not affect the findings of the commission ?

Senator Sir George Pearce - No.

Senator GRANT - In those circumstances I shall not oppose the motion.

Suggest corrections
