Mr WHITLAM (WERRIWA, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I ask the Prime Minister a question. The right honorable gentleman will be aware that a clergyman in his constituency, who has advocated modifications of our immigration policy, has received threatening letters and telephone calls, that racist epithets have been painted on the pavement outside his church and that the door of the church hall has been embellished with verses such as -

The Vicar with the empty church Has left his own race in the lurch.

I ask the Prime Minister whether any Commonwealth agencies are responsible for investigating or countering such racist or fascist activity, and whether any such agencies have concerned themselves with the activity in this case.

Suggest corrections
