Senator LILLICO (TASMANIA) - I direct a question to the Minister representing the Prime Minister. I ask the Minister whether he believes that Mr T. C.

Winter was the most competent constitutional and economic authority available to report to the Government on power over prices and incomes. It will be recalled that he brought forth the extraordinary conclusion that all incomes should be vetted.

Will or can an opportunity be given for a debate on this report during this session?
