The PRESIDENT - Earlier this afternoon Senator Murphy asked mc a question which has 2 parts. The first relates to a new and permanent parliament house. I inform the honourable senator that the Senate's message to the House of Representatives proposing a joint sitting to resolve the site of a new and permanent parliament house is listed for consideration on the House of Representatives notice paper as Government Business, Order of the Day No. 75. The message was sent to the House of Representatives on 7lh May 1971.

The second part of Senator Murphy's question was a personal one. He asked whether, in accordance with the comity which should exist between the 2 Houses, an answer should be forthcoming from the other House. To that I reply that it is not within my province to say when that other place will consider a message from the Senate and send the Senate a reply.
