Dr PRICE (BOOTHBY, SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - I ask the Minister representing the Minister for Information how it is that Berlin, Tokyo and Rome are able to report immediately such items of Australian news as the Prime Minister's declaration against illegal strikes, the protest of the Leader of the Opposition against the clothing regulations, and Sir Keith Murdoch's article on the Battle of the Coral Sea? Is the enemy picking up this information from broadcasts, or is it being cabled to neutral countries and getting to the enemy in that way, or is there a leakage through secret wireless stations in Australia?
