Mr SPEAKER -Yesterday afternoon the honourable member for Blaxland (Mr Keating) referred to an article which appeared in the 'Sydney Sun' by a journalist named Neil O'Reilly relating to additional staff assistance for members of Parliament which had been mentioned in a statement by the Leader of the House (Mr Daly). The honourable member for Blaxland asked me to consider whether the article constituted a prima facie case which might be referred to the Committee of Privileges. Much as I deprecate the statements made and the implications contained therein which I believe to be dishonest and unworthy of a decent standard of journalism, the article, in my opinion, does not constitute a prima facie case of breach of privilege.
