Mr CHIFLEY - That matter will be dealt with in the budget speech.

Mr Holt - I would not have raised it but for the wide publicity given.

Mr CHIFLEY - I was not responsible for the publicity and therefore cannot be expected to reply to it. I have not seen the statement and I do not know whether it is correct or not.

Mr Menzies - Does the right honorable gentleman save all his newspaper reading for the week-end?

Mr CHIFLEY - When the House is sitting I never read the newspapers until late at night so that I shall not be guilty of an untruth when I say that I have not seen a statement. I hope to deliver the budget speech on Friday if the papers are available from the printer. The matter referred to by the honorable gentleman will be dealt with at some length in that speech.
