Sir JOHN QUICK (BENDIGO, VICTORIA) - I wish to ask the Minister of Trade and Customs whether he has noticed that, apparently owing to the piecemeal manner in which the reports of the Tariff Commission have been submitted to the House, none of the recommendations contained in paragraphs1 to 14, inclusive, with reference to the proposed amendments of the Excise, Distillation, and Commerce Acts, have yet been published in the press for the information of the general community. Will he direct that the reports and recommendations as a whole shall be consolidated, published, and circulated in the form in which they were originally presented to the AttorneyGeneral ? Will he also make arrangements with the Government Printers of the States for the publication, and sale to the public, of copies of these and other reports of the Commission ?
