Mr Wentworth asked the Minister representing the Attorney-General, upon notice, on 5 October 1977:

(1)   Following the passage of certain referenda on 2 1 May 1977 was the Commonwealth Constitution altered in certain respects?

(2)   Is it a fact that no amended copy of the Constitution is yet available from the Australian Government Publishing Service. If so, what is the reason for the delay, and what does the Minister propose to do about it?

Mr Howard - The Attorney-General has provided the following answer to the honourable member's question:

(1)   Yes.

(2)   Amended copies of the Constitution are not yet available. However, a reprint of the Constitution incorporating the 1977 amendments, which were assented to on 29 July, as wei as up-to-date notes and an index, is in course of preparation. The first proofs of the new reprint have been obtained and are now with the Government Printer for revision. I expect the reprint to be available to the public some time next month.
