Mr HUTCHINSON (DEAKIN, VICTORIA) - Has the Prime Minister seen a report in the . Melbourne Herald of the 29tb July, which states that the British Prime Minister, Mr. Attlee, has instructed members of his cabinet that henceforth they must not make any speeches on controversial subjects without first obtaining his permission, and that he has also informed them that he wants to see the script of all speeches prepared by them before, they are delivered ? In view of the widely divergent views on' matters of public interest expressed by members of his own cabinet, does the Prime Minister intend to take similar action, or will the electors be allowed to understand that in Australia there is no such thing as joint cabinet responsibility or any real sense of cabinet loyalty?
