Senator KEATING (TASMANIA) - Is the Minister representing the Attorney-General aware that there is considerable delay in circulating, and some difficulty in obtaining, the Statutes of the Commonwealth ? Is he also aware that a considerable number of persons in the community, mora especially lawyers, are anxious to obtain the Statutes as early as possible, and willing to subscribe for them if a system of that kind is adopted? Will he have inquiries made with the view to having the measures furnished to intending subscribers on reasonable terms as early as possible after they have become law? In explanation, sir, I might say that some Statutes of great war urgency, such as the War Precautions Act and the Trading with the Enemy Act, which have been passed during this session, are unobtainable in some States, even by those who necessarily need to have almost immediate recourse to them.
