Mr SPEAKER - On the last day of sitting, some honourable members drew attention to a passage in a speech by the Minister for Service and Property (Mr Daly), as reported at page589 of Hansard. The Minister himself made two personal explanations, giving his recollection of the precise words he had used. I was asked to make inquiries regarding the accuracy of the Hansard Report and to disallow any alteration of substance if one were submitted to the Hansard office. I have discussed the matter with the Principal Parliamentary Reporter, and now inform the House:

(1)   I am satisfied that the report is accurate.

(2)   The passage in Hansard will not be altered.

(3)   Before the Minister left for overseas he was informed of the position and in his shy and retiring manner he agreed with the content of it.
