The DEPUTY PRESIDENT.- At the request of the President of the Senate (Senator Sir Alister McMullin), I present the following paper -

Observations on the Permanent Parliament House.

Copies of this paper are available to honorable senators. The President has asked me to state by way of explanation that the paper was prepared in 1963. It represents his observations, made as presiding officer in the light of the situation at that time, on the need for early preparatory planning of accommodation requirements for the future permanent parliamentary building and on some of the more important problems relating to the planning of that accommodation.

The paper was made available to the Government in 1963, but it was not distributed generally. It is tabled now in view of the Government's proposal to set up a parliamentary committee to examine the construction of a permanent Parliament House. The President's purpose in writing, and in now tabling, the report is to help senators and members to appreciate some of the problems involved in a project of this magnitude.
