Senator VIGOR(6.28) —On page 7 of the Auditor-General's report relating to last year's financial statements, the Department of Territories is listed under the heading `Departmental Deficiencies'. Apparently there were problems in the processing of cheques and the reconciliation of bank accounts. I would be pleased if the Minister, as we look at the current estimates, could give an undertaking that the accounting and payment procedures of the relevant branches will be or have been reviewed and that appropriate procedures will be introduced so that we can relate the estimates that we are now getting with the figures that we will have to match them with.
