Mr SNEDDEN (BRUCE, VICTORIA) (Attorney-General) - The Australian Security Intelligence Organisation is not concerned in any way with the activities of members of the Commonwealth Parliament. I shall look at the other matters raised by the honorable member when the question appears in printed form in " Hansard " and see whether I can provide him with an answer. I shall also make investigations to see whether I can find an answer to the honorable member's question relating to the alleged attendance of three Security officers at a metting addressed by him. Let me emphasise that it has been a long standing custom of this Parliament that the activities of the Australian Security Intelligence Organisation should not be publicised when, to do so, would affect the capacity of the Organisation to perform the job which it was consitituted to do - to act for the better security of this country.
