Mr WHITLAM (WERRIWA, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I ask the Prime Minister a question. Two days ago, the right honourable gentleman told my Deputy that he had not yet had time to study the speech which the honourable member for Farrer made, while he was overseas, after the papers between the Commonwealth and the States on the territorial seas and continental shelf legislation had been tabled and were under discussion. The right honourable gentleman also said that, after he had studied the speech, he would 'seek to in some detail show why' he held the opinion that there had been no breach of faith or commitment to the States. I ask: Has he now studied the speech by the honourable member for Farrer? If so, when will he be seeking the opportunity to prove his opinion?
