Mr TUDOR (Yarra) .- The Bill not only increases the membership of the Committee from nine to ten, but gives statutory effect to what honorable members who have served on the Committee tell me is already the practice. This measure will give the Public Accounts Committee powers on all-fours with those enjoyed by the Public Works Committee. Honorable members who were in the House when these two Committees were first brought into existence, will recollect that the Public Accounts Committee was regarded as a body of secondary importance. I believe that it is equally as important as the Public Works Committee, and can do good work. I cordially support the measure.
