Mr McLeay (BOOTHBY, SOUTH AUSTRALIA) asked the Prime Minister, upon notice:

(1)   Did he state at a dinner for the Yugoslav Prime Minister that it is a cold fact that every known act of grave violence on political grounds perpetrated in Australia in recent years has come from the extremist Right.

(2)   If so, can he say where and when these known acts of grave violence occurred, who was the perpetrator of each of these acts, and what proof of the political views of the perpetrator in each case was available.

Mr Whitlam - The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

(1)   Yes.

(2)   1 draw the honourable member's attention to the Attorney-General's statement in the Senate on 27 March 1973 on Croatian Terrorism (Hansard pages S28-S46), to documents tabled at that time and to my statement in the House of Representatives on 10 April (Hansard, pages 1223-1226).
