Mr ROSEVEAR asked the Prime

Minister, upon notice -

1.   Has his attention been drawn to the statement appearing in the press purporting to be a report of a speech by Colonel Campbell, wherein he stated that, in consideration of the New Guard providing a body-guard for him during the delivery of his policy speech, the Prime Minister undertook that he would - not only crush communism but would deport agitators and that he (Campbell) had been responsible for the Prime Minister pencilling this undertaking on the margin of his copy of the policy speech?

2.   Is the Prime Minister prepared to say that the statements of Campbell relating to the pencilling on the margin of the policy speech are entirely unfounded?
