Mr MENZIES - Naturally, as the honorable member will suppose, I do not carry these figures in my mind, but I shall find out whether the question he has put is well founded. Now, perhaps, I might take the opportunity of saying to all honorable members that although the Parliament will adjourn and be prorogued quite soon, if any honorable member who wants to have any facts on any of these matters - affecting the Treasury or otherwise - lets us know in good time, I shall see that all the resources of the department are made available, and for a very good reason. I want honorable members to know what the facts are. We can then argue about them, because the odd thing about facts is that, though they are supposed to be intractable, they always give rise to incredible arguments.
