Senator MILLINER (QUEENSLAND) - I direct a question to you, Mr President. Are you aware that the publication of yesterday's Senate Hansard has been delayed by nearly 4i hours today, thereby causing great inconvenience to honourable senators, departments, the diplomatic corps and other recipients? Was this delay due to a mechanical breakdown at the Government Printing Office? If so, will you use your good offices with the Treasurer to have the Government Printer's obsolete machinery replaced with modern equipment, as recommended by the Joint Committee on Publications last year?

The PRESIDENT - It is my understanding that there was a mechanical breakdown affecting the printing of yesterday's Senate Hansard. I am sure that no-one regrets this more than the Principal Parliamentary Reporter, who is at the table. As to whether I have any good offices with the Treasurer to use in the interests of the Senate, I am doubtful. But if they exist, I shall see that they are exerted.
