Senator HILL(10.26) —I do not want to continue unduly, but I invite the Minister in that consideration, when he comes back to the chamber, to see whether we can be given some idea as to when Mr Greenwood believes his primary files, that is the matters that have received greater attention in the debates in this chamber and in the Estimates Committee hearing, are going to reach a stage of finality as far as he is concerned. In previous Estimates committees we have been given a prospective date which has already passed. The whole subject is obviously one of considerable concern to the community, and I think at the very least some further clarity is called for. Simply to provide base numbers of matters under investigation does not really enlighten us as to what sort of progress is being made in the whole investigatory process.
