Mr CURTIN (Fremantle) (Prime Minister) . - in reply - I assure the honorable member for Melbourne (Mr. Calwell) that I shall ascertain the position in respect of the matter that he has mentioned.

There seems to be some misunderstanding in regard to the subject referred to by the honorable member for Denison (Mr. Beck). I have a partial reply to the question that he placed on the noticepaper, but it does not deal with the matter adequately. I hope to make a full answer to him next week. The letter sent to a member of another place did not deal with precisely the same subject.

All that I have to say about the austerity campaign is that I wish it were applied to the speeches of honorable members.

Question resolved in the affirmative.
