Mr CURTIN (Kingsford) (Smith) .- Mr. Speaker,I am very pleased that the Deputy Leader of the Opposition (Mr. Calwell) has raised this mater. It has been a burning question with me for some time. Quite a few years ago, we brought this matter up. Of course, the timid supporters of the Government are afraid of the press, and they dare not say a word in condemnation of it. Members are forced to crowd two and three to a room, and take it with a smile, because the Government is afraid to say anything in opposition to the claims of the press, which occupies 21 rooms in this building at the taxpayers' expense.
