Mr WENTWORTH (MACKELLAR, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I ask the Prime Minister: Does he recall how former President Nixon sacrificed one subordinate after another in an attempt to maintain the fiction that he had no prior knowledge of their misdeeds and that he was not involved in the Watergate affair? Has the Prime Minister as yet -

Mr Cope - Mr Speaker,I raise a point of order. I think you are aware of the Standing Order. I submit that when a person's name is mentioned in a critical sense the question must be placed on the notice paper.

Mr SPEAKER - I will hear the question.

Mr WENTWORTH - I ask: Has the Prime Minister, as yet, taken any steps to destroy or suppress any evidence which would show that he had personal and prior knowledge of the activities of the former Treasurer and of the former Minister for Minerals and Energy? Is he confident that none of the scapegoats will spill the beans?

Mr WHITLAM - I ask that the question be placed on notice.
