Senator KEEFFE - Is the Acting Leader of the Government in the Senate aware that an informal meeting of Government supporters was held in Parliament House after the delivery of the Budget on Tuesday evening? Is he also aware that one senior Minister pacified his colleagues by pointing out that any inflationary trends caused by the Budget would be corrected in February by the reintroduction of higher rates of taxation? Can he inform the Parliament whether, in the event of a national disaster such as the return of the Government, such action has already been decided by the Government?

Senator DRAKE-BROCKMAN - I am not aware of any informal meeting. 1 hear of lots of meetings being held around this place by members from both sides of the chamber so I have no further comment to make.
