Dame ENID LYONS (DARWIN, TASMANIA) - Has the Attorney-General seen the following newspaper item : -

The film Indonesia. Culling was shown privately to Federal Ministers during the Inst meeting of Federal Cabinet to-day. The film, which had only a limited public audience, is a dramatization of the waterside workers' case in the dispute over the Dutch ships during the Indonesian campaign.

Will the Minister make a statement to the House concerning the nature of the film ? Was it a film designed as propaganda in support of the commission of an offence against Commonwealth law, one which affected relations between Australia and a nother power ? For whom and by whom was the film made ? Isit to be distributed, and, if so, under what conditions, and in what countries?
