Mr GARLAND (Curtin) (Minister for Supply) - For the information of honourable members I present the following document:

Letter to the Administrator of the Commonwealth from the Chairman of the Commonwealth Grants Commission reporting the amounts to be recommended for payments of special grants to the States in 1972-73.

The Commonwealth Grants Commission's further report is expected to be available for tabling in the House when Parliament meets again on 10th October 1972. The States Grants (Special Assistance) Bill is being introduced today so that the House can have sufficient time to examine its provisions. I assure honourable members that the Bill will not come on for debate until the Grants Commission's further report is tabled and there has been a reasonable opportunity for members to study it.
