Mr WARD - I ask the Prime Minister: Is it a fact that in 1940 Sir John Latham recommended that the provisions of the Australian Constitution be suspended and a six-man non-elective committee be set up with complete power to govern? Is it a fact that Sir John Latham wrote to the Prime Minister regarding his proposal? Did the Prime Minister contact Sir John Latham expressing agreement with tn scheme and, if so, will he state why the plan was never proceeded with?
