Mr WHITLAM (WERRIWA, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I ask the Minister for the Navy a question. I presume that the honorable gentleman has now perused Vice-Admiral Hickling's book on the " Voyager " royal commission and will have noted the assertion that two professionally qualified witnesses were interviewed in the chambers of counsel assisting the Royal Commissioner and were told that they would be called to give evidence but in fact were not so called. Will the Minister state the names and qualifications of those witnesses, the nature of the evidence they would have been able to give, and the reason for not calling them?
