Senator McLAREN (South Australia) - As a member of Estimates Committee A I feel that I should comment on the remarks which Senator Wright has made about the Chairman of that Committee. Senator Wright just stated that the Chairman tried to use his authority to terminate the sittings of that Committee. I wish to place on record that on the last night of sitting of Estimates Committee A we waited 7 minutes after the scheduled starting time for Senator Wright to take his place. That meeting could have been aborted for want of a quorum. We did him the courtesy of waiting 7 minutes to allow him to question the witnesses who were present.
