The CHAIRMAN - I think that the Gazette is altogether too verbose, and that the Government Printer might very well be asked if he could not furnish us with a plan of a more concise publication. I intend to vote for the motion, although I think that the proposed reduction is rather too large. The honorable senator might effect his purpose by moving a request for a reduction of the item by £1.

Senator STEWART(Queensland). -- With the permission of the Committee, I shall move a request to reduce the item by £1, as an intimation to the Government Printer that we require a more compact Gazette.

Motion, by leave, withdrawn.

Motion (by Senator Stewart) proposed -

That the House of Representatives be requested to reduce the item " Printing and distribution of

Commonwealth Gazette,£2,000,"by £1.
