Mr HUTCHISON - That is so. Surely the Parliamentary papers can be bound and sent out more expeditiously than they are at present. I know a little about the printing trade, and have been looking at the cost of some of the items relating to this Department. If we are supplying our own machinery we are certainly paying an enormous price for our printing. I wish to know whether the machinery which we have provided is used solely for Commonwealth purposes? Jn the interests of the taxpayer, it is necessary that we should inquire into these items, and I trust that the Treasurer, to whose Department this matter relates, will be able to furnish an answer to my question.
