Mr FOX (HENTY, VICTORIA) - My question is also directed to the Prime Minister. In view of the answers that he has given to the Leader of the Opposition and in view of the reference which he made to the existence of a Senate committee, will he- make available to that Senate committee an authenticated copy of the telex sent from the Canberra office of the Australian Security Intelligence Organisation to other branches of ASIO on 28 March? If not, why not?


Mr WHITLAM - Here again it is not the practice to confirm or deny the existence of any telex messages. There is a Senate select committee. If it believes that it is entitled to see any such documents it has procedures available to it. As far as I understand, it has not tried any such procedures.
