Mr WENTWORTH (MACKELLAR, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I address to you, Mr. Speaker, a question relating to the extreme desirability of having a parliamentary draftsman, not under the control of the Attorney-General's Department, available to honorable members in the performance of their duties in this House. Are you aware that the lack of an officer of this character is particularly acute at the moment when the Trade Practices Bill and the Income Tax Assessment Bill are before the House? Have you addressed your mind to this question? Are you able to foreshadow any action with regard to meeting this requirement for the proper performance of their duties by members of this House?
