Senator LITTLE (VICTORIA) - Is the Minister representing the Minister for Customs and Excise aware that 'The Little Red Schoolbook' has been adjudged obscene by a magistrate in Victoria? As obscenity is one of the reasons for which the Commonwealth bounty on the printing of books can be refused, is the Minister yet in a position to answer my question of 26th April as to whether or not the book bounty is to be paid to the printer of 'The Little Red Schoolbook'? Failing immediate information, can an answer be expected before the Senate rises?

Senator COTTON - In answer to the last part of the question, yes. The first part of the question related to the finding of a Victorian court. I know that the Minister for Customs and Excise has been studying the finding. No doubt if he has something further to say on the matter he will instruct me to say it on his behalf.
