Mr CREAN (Melbourne Ports) - by leave - Last night there was some discussion in the House as to whether certain notes that had been prepared in the Treasury and which had then been taken to the Minister for Immigration (Mr Snedden) as Leader of the House, had or had not been delivered to the Opposition. I have found that in fact the document had been delivered by Mr Grigg, as Secretary to the Minister, to the Deputy Leader of the Opposition (Mr Barnard) as the leader of this side of the House. How the notes subsequently went astray is, I think, immaterial, but. I did wish to indicate that Mr Grigg fully discharged whatever responsibilities attached to him, and what happened to the document after that does not, I think, matter.

Mr Snedden - I appreciate the honourable member's statement.
