Sir JOHN FORREST (Swan) (Treasurer) . - So far as I am aware, the Auditor-General has approved generally of the plan of the measure. Owing to his absence, through illness, he has not personally approved of it in every particular, but his locum tenens,Mr. Whitton, has approved of the measure, with the exception of the -clause I have undertaken to recommit. I understand that all the other clauses have received the approval of- the AuditorGeneral's locum tenens.

Sir JOHN FORREST - That is the information I have just obtained.
