The PRESIDENT - In dealing with some domestic matters I make the following statement for the benefit of honourable senators:

I have been examining senators' entitlement to complimentary copies of Hansard. The present quota of 35 copies was fixed as long ago as 1912, and I propose to increase the number to 50, of which 10 may be the daily Hansard. Since that time, the average representation has increased so substantially as to warrant the increase on arithmetical grounds alone, but another factor that has influenced my decision is the great interest that is being shown, both in Australia and overseas, in the debates of the Senate. At the same time, I ask senators to examine their mailing lists- I shall be grateful if honourable senators would remark this- to ensure that all the recipients still want to have the Hansard publications and that they have not changed their addresses, because this adds substantially to the cost of the distribution of Hansard.
