Mr McDONALD (KENNEDY, QUEENSLAND) - Last year we were told that the price of Hansard to subscribers would be 4s. a session, but I understand, from what I have read in thepress,that in future 1 0s. 6d. is to be charged. I want to know why, and on whose authority, this alteration has been made? A number of would-be subscribers have sent tome - and no doubt other honorable members are in the same position - the sum of 4s., in order that I may procure copies ofHansard fur them, but I do not know whether to incur the extra expense on their behalf. ' In view of the unreliability of tho newspaper reports from time to time, I think that we should encourage the distribution of Hansard, and even provide for a daily Ilansard.
