Senator WALTERS —I refer the Minister for Veterans' Affairs to the question asked of him by Senator Devlin and I ask: Is it a fact that the so-called withdrawal of the censure motion is the normal way of resuming other business after such a debate has taken place in the lower House in Tasmania? Is it also a fact that that censure motion split the Opposition with three Australian Labor Party members for Braddon-Messrs Fields, Davies and Coughlan-supporting the urgency motion against the Commonwealth's action?

Senator GIETZELT —I would not dare comment on what is normal or abnormal in the State of Tasmania when it is led by Mr Gray.
