Mr MAHON (COOLGARDIE, WESTERN AUSTRALIA) asked the Prime Minister, upon notice -

1.   Has he noticed the cable summary of the diary of General Sir Ian Hamilton at Gallipoli, in which it is insinuated that Mr. Murdoch, an Australian journalist, had violated the censorship rules, and which proceeds to make certain reflections on Mr. Murdoch?

2.   Is Mr. Murdoch, in replying to Sir Ian Hamilton, correct in stating that he went to Gallipoli "as a representative of the Commonwealth Government"?

3.   If so, (a) will he lay on the table a copy of the instructions given to Mr. Murdoch and of any reports received from him; (b) will he state the amount drawn by Mr. Murdoch as salary and expenses?
