Mr CALWELL - I read in the Melbourne Herald on the 31st May the statement to which the honorable member has referred. I was entirely unimpressed. I thought that the committee was trying to whitewash Mr. Jenkins. In any event, I think that it waa scant courtesy to pay to the General Assembly of that body to have a minor subsidiary organization bringing along a resolution of the General Assembly to present it to me in Canberra. I would expect to hear in due course from the leaders of that church. I do not regard the people who came here the other day any differently from the way in which I regarded them yesterday. I think that Mr. Jenkins is a member of the Communist party and the other man, who also claimed to be a representative of a body of the Christian faith in Melbourne, are, in common with all Eureka .(League delegates and all the rest of them, just a bunch of " Corns ".
