Senator DALY (South Australia) (Vice-President of the Executive Council) . - As Senator Herbert Hays was good enough to inform me that he intended to bring up, on the adjournment, the matter to which he has referred, I had an interview with the Acting Minister for Trade and Customs (Mr. Forde), who, in turn, made inquiries. So far as his department knows, there is nothing in the rumour that has gained circulation. But, attention having been drawn to the matter, the department will make full inquiries, the result of which I hope to be in a position to place before honorable senators tomorrow or early next week.

Unless there is some objection on the ground of policy, I see no reason why Senator E. B. J Johnston's request should not be granted. I shall place the honorable senator's request before the Prime Minister.

I have no objection to making copies of my speech on the Wheat Marketing Bill available to honorable senators, but as there is always a possibility of errors in printing tables of figures, honorable senators must regard as uncorrected the pulls that will be made available to them.

Honorable Senators. - Hear, hear!

Question resolved in the affirmative.
