Senator KEEFFE - My question is again directed to the Minister representing the Minister for Supply. I respectfully request the Minister to obtain the information 1 seek as soon possible if it is not available now. Is it a fact that a Commonwealth auction sale was organised and held by the Department of Supply at Darwin on 21st June 1972? Is the Minister aware that at this sale 10 washing machines, 2 water coolers, one refrigerator and one fan were sold for a total of $291? Is he aware that this sum represents about SO per cent or less of the true value of the goods sold? Was a reserve price placed on the various articles? If so, what was the reserve price on each article?

The PRESIDENT - 1 do not think that question is one which can be properly addressed to a Minister representing another Minister. It contains a lot of technical information with which it is impossible to deal, I request the honourable senator to put the question on notice.
