Mr SWARTZ (Darling Downs) (Minister for National Development) - May I suggest that it might suit the convenience of the Committee to consider the items of proposed expenditure in the following order:

 

Consideration of the items in groups of departments which have a functional association one with another has met the convenience of the Committee in past years. The proposed arrangement will also ensure that as far as possible departments will be considered while their Ministers are in Canberra. I also take the opportunity to indicate to the Committee that the proposed order for consideration of the estimates of departments, as well as the time to be made available for debate on each department or group of departments, has been discussed with the Opposition which has raised no objection to what has been proposed.

The DEPUTY CHAIRMAN- Is it the wish of the Committee to consider the items of proposed expenditure in the order suggested by the Leader of the House? There being no objection, that course will be followed.

Second Schedule.

Progress reported.
