Mr FADDEN (DARLING DOWNS, QUEENSLAND) - I have in my hand a sixteen-page booklet entitled The Facts, which contains extracts from speeches that have .been broadcast by members of the Government. The booklet bears the imprint, "Published by J. B. Chifley, M.H.R., and H. V. Evatt, M.H.R., Parliament House, Canberra, and printed by the Government Printer ". In view of the fact that the bulk of the material in the booklet is Labour political propaganda, will the Prime Minister say whether it was published at the expense of the Australian Government? If so, how many copies were printed, and to whom were they distributed ? How many copies were sent to branches of the Australian Labour party?
