Mr CHIFLEY (MACQUARIE, NEW SOUTH WALES) (Treasurer) . - inreply - I wish to answer briefly a suggestion made by the honorable member for Wilmot (Mr. Guy) that the Prime Minister (Mr. Curtin), or some other member of the Government, had exerted pressure 'on the Commonwealth Grants Commission in order to induce it to alter its original recommendation. The idea is too fantastic to require much comment.

Mr Guy - It would seem that advance information was obtained of the intended recommendations of the commission.

Suggest corrections
