Mr FISHER (Wide Bay) .- The only objection that could be raised to the passing of this motion is that the preparation of the return will involve expense. Nothing could be more satisfactory to a representative House like this than the furnishing of the most complete information in the direction sought. We have nothing to do with the motive of the honorable member who has moved for the return. It is a sound principle that the national expenditure should always be keenly scrutinized, although I venture to assert that the return will furnish much detailed information which few of us will read, and in which very few will be interested. I trust, however, that the House will agree to the motion.
