Senator DAVIDSON (SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - Mr President,my question is directed to you. It relates to an item on the notice paper which is a reference to the Senate Standing Committee on Finance and Government Operations. It is an item referring to the effects of estate duties on individuals and communities and the social consequences of such duties. As I presented the appropriate resolution for this reference in 1971 and as there has been no progress or interim report I ask you to inquire whether a report is ready. Can we obtain an assurance that the report, if ready, will be tabled before the Senate rises?

The PRESIDENT - Senator Davidson,under the rules of the Senate you can ask the Chairman of the Senate Standing Committee on Finance and Government Operations whether he has a report available. But as you are directing the question to me I shall ask the Chairman myself during the course of the day and see what the situation is.
