Mr CALWELL (Melbourne) - I would like to ask the Chairman of the Publications Committee a question on the printing of papers. How many more documents are before the Committee for consideration and recommendation to this House that they be printed? The Budget session is coming on and if more information could be circulated to honourable members in printed form it would, I believe, greatly assist in the consideration of the Budget Papers or in the consideration of the principles on which the Budget is based.

Mr ERWIN(Ballaarat) - in reply -We have long lists of documents submitted to the Joint Committee at regular intervals and from those documents we choose the ones that we feel, in the interests of this House and the nation, should be printed. At this stage I would not be able to tellthe right honourable member for Melbourne (Mr Calwell) how many more documents there are before the Committee because the documents are submitted regularly and we usually deal with them at 3-weekly intervals. I hope that answers the question asked by the right honourable gentleman.

Question resolved in the affirmative.
