Senator VIGOR(9.59) —The proposed amendment will introduce uniform standards. One of the very important things that the Public Service must do is be responsible to this Parliament. This amendment places some basic requirement on the Public Service to provide information which this Parliament requires in order to discharge its duties. I am extremely surprised at the remarks of the Minister for Finance (Senator Walsh), because I believe that we cannot properly fulfil our duties of supervising the Public Service of this country without having proper reporting. I have found that to be the case in the Senate with all the processes that take place.

Question put:

That the words proposed to be added (Senator Vigor's amendment) be added.
