Mr CALWELL (MELBOURNE, VICTORIA) - Has the Prime Minister yet ascertained who authorized the censorship authorities to prohibit American press correspondents from cabling to America their stories concerning the debate in this chamber last week on the desirability or otherwise of permitting Mr. Brian Ponton to leave Australia for the purpose of engaging in a lecture tour of the United States of America? If so, has the right honorable gentleman taken action to ensure that the cabling of such stories to America shall be permitted? Tn view of all that has been said on this subject, does the Prime Minister still propose to allow Mr. Penton to leave this country?
