Mr SPEAKER - During the week this matter has been touched upon by the honorable member for Griffith (Mr. Conelan) , and the honorable member for Cook (Mr. Sheehan). I submitted a general question to the Solicitor-General for legal advice. Only a moment ago I received the information that I sought, but I have not yet had an opportunity to study it. The other question asked by the honorable member will be given consideration. As to the installation in the committee room to which he has referred, loud-speakers which were installed about seven or eight years ago arc now not very efficient, . and it was thought that more efficient instruments should he provided to give honorable members an opportunity to hear, before broadcasts actually commenced, how their voices will sound over the air. Consequently the best instrument obtainable was placed in a room which is not often used, where it would not inconvenience members using the party rooms. I shall inquire into the legal point raised by the honorablemember and furnish information to him later.
