The PRESIDENT - Yes.


Senator NEEDHAM - Has the House of Representatives authorized the Prime Minister, Mr. Sinclair, and Sir John Forrest to appear before the Select Committee; and, if not, why has not that been done ?


The PRESIDENT - There is no need for the honorable senator to ask me that question. He has learned from the message which I have read that permission has only been granted to such members of the House of Representatives as are named in the message. It is quite ridiculous to ask me why the House of Representatives has or has not done a certain thing. I have no responsibility for what that House does.
