Mr JOLLY (Lilley) .- The Supplementary Estimates relate to expenditure prior to the 30th June, and I have never been able to ascertain why they are not submitted to Parliament in September when the budget and General Estimates are under consideration. Honorable members should have before them the .Supplementary Estimates when they are reviewing the finances for the year, because there is often some relationship between the General Estimates and the Supplementary Estimates. On one occasion, the Supplementary Estimates were withheld for nearly two years.

The CHAIRMAN (Mr. Prowse).Order! I remind the honorable member that the committee is considering, not the Supplementary Estimates, but Additional Estimates of Expenditure for the year ending the 30th June, 1942.
