Mr MENZIES - 1 know about this case because my constituents wrote to me about it. Who knows what can be done about this kind of thing! We had outbursts of it recently in the surroundings of Sydney, directed against the Jewish community. In the old days, I have even had the spectacle of my own fence being painted with suitable slogans calling on the people to remove me. We regret this deplorable piece of vandalism - for that is what it is - but it is primarily, I think, a matter for the State police, because it is not a matter of great political significance or anything of that kind. It is sheer larrikinism and vandalism. In fact, the sooner some of these young vandals who get about are dealt with suitably, the better it will be for the country.
