Mr PETERS (SCULLIN, VICTORIA) - ls the Prime Minister aware that Sir Edward Warren announced to the Japan-Australia Business Cooperation Committee that be was confident that the long awaited double taxation agreement between Australia and Japan would be settled by the end of this year? Is this the manner in which the present Government makes known to the Parliament and the nation, while Parliament is sitting, and of course to members of the Government parties, its intentions in regard to legislative proposals of vital importance to the economy of Australia? Has this Government departed from the procedures of the Menzies and Holt governments whereby such announcements were first made in Parliament if Parliament was sitting?
