The PRESIDENT —There have been some delays in the publication of the daily Hansards of the Senate and Estimates committees this week. The Principal Parliamentary Reporter has informed me that between Tuesday night and yesterday morning the Government Printing Office again experienced serious problems in the use of the new typesetting equipment installed during the winter months. All the Hansard copy was processed by the Hansard staff, forwarded to the Printing Office on schedule and typeset; but because of a major equipment problem that occurred on Tuesday night it was not possible to transfer the Hansard material from the typesetting process to the printing process. That problem was overcome yesterday morning. Tuesday's Senate Hansard was printed and delivered yesterday morning. Wednesday's and yesterday's Senate Hansards were printed last night and will be delivered early this morning. Tuesday's Estimates committees Hansard is being printed this morning and will be delivered later this morning. Yesterday's Estimates committees Hansard will not be available until Monday.
