Mr CHIFLEY - I have not seen a report of the statement that is alleged to have been made by Mr. Casey at Boronia. I should have- thought that, if he had knowledge of highly placed public officials being engaged in sabotage or in the sale of secret documents to agents of a foreign country, he would, if he did not desire to bring the matter to the notice of the Government, at least have referred it to the Commonwealth Investigation Service. He could have done that without any publicity. I am not prepared to accept the press report as an accurate account of what Mr. Casey in fact said. Probably i he statement has been torn from its context. If Mr. Casey has any definite information, apart from suspicion, I request him, in the public interest, to adopt my suggestion.
