Dr MACKAY (EVANS, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I ask the AttorneyGeneral a question. On 1st October, in answer to a question by the Leader of the Opposition, the Attorney-General said that a Mr. E. S. Sachs had admitted in sworn evidence before the Supreme Court of South Africa that he was a Communist. Will the Attorney-General inform the House of the title of the case in which Mr. Sachs was involved? In view of the linguistic embarrassment of the Leader of the Opposition, will the Attorney-General endeavour to give an English translation of the title? Has Mr. Sachs ever made any retraction of his evidence or has he expressed any indication of having changed the views and beliefs which led him to seek membership of the Communist Party.
