Senator McGREGOR - The answer to the honorable senator's question is that the matter will be taken into consideration in connexion with the transfer of the State debts.

Senator MILLEN - I draw attention to the fact that the Vice-President of the Executive Council has not given an answer. My question was not as to what the matter of the transferred properties would be considered in connexion with, but as to when the subject would be dealt with. The whole point is one of time. I ask the Minister whether it is proposed to take action this session in regard to the payment for the transferred properties, either in connexion with or apart from the transfer of the State debts?

Senator McGREGOR - The answer was as definite as it could possibly be. Whenever the question of taking over the State debts is under consideration by the Government, the question of the transferred properties will also be considered. Surely that is definite enough. I cannot say whether the matter will be considered tomorrow, or next week, or the week after.

Senator MILLEN - I now ask whether the Government propose to take into consideration the question of the transfer of the State debts this session?

Senator McGREGOR - I should like the honorable senator to give notice of his question.
