Mr ROSEVEAR (DALLEY, NEW SOUTH WALES) - With regard to the pamphlet entitled What National

Insurance Means,I ask the Treasurer whether Professor Brigden, whose name and photograph appear on the pamphlet, is responsible for the personal message contained in it; whether in view of the politically controversial statements made in the personal message, Professor Brigden can be regarded as a public servant in every sense of the word, or one who has been engaged as a booster for the Government's national insurance scheme; and whether the fact that his photograph appears on that government pamphlet can be taken as an indication that he is a candidate for a popular-boy competition?

Mr CASEY - The chairman of the National Insurance 'Commission is Mr. Brigden. He is a public servant and a very capable one.
