Thursday, 10 March 1977

Mr Les Johnson (HUGHES, NEW SOUTH WALES) -Mr Speaker,I claim to have been misrepresented and seek to make a personal explanation.


Mr Les Johnson (HUGHES, NEW SOUTH WALES) -The matter has been referred to extensively already. The paragraph of an article which was read by my colleague, the honourable member for Melbourne, applies also to me. It states: we have had favourable comments back from other committee members including . . .

Several names are mentioned and mine is the last so mentioned. I simply want to say that with other members of Party committees I met representatives of the Australian Uranium Producers Forum. My role in that meeting was to ask a number of questions. In fact, I did ask one question which certainly could not be construed to be in support of the Forum's policy. I have had no contact with the International Public Relations organisation. The contention made in the Nation Reveiw of 10-16 March 1977 is completely without foundation.
