Mr HUNT - I have not received any specific complaints. The complaint to which the honourable gentleman referred was seen by me for the first tune in the Press this morning. The broad complaint that has come to my notice is that the people involved with the program are unacceptable to Queensland authorities because they are political activists and are unacceptable when an election campaign is being conducted. The Royal Australian College of Ophthalmologists does not wish to become embroiled in a political situation. The complaint is a general one and I have not had the opportunity of discussing the matter with Professor Hollows. I would like to discuss it with him ultimately. He has been out of contact because he has been operating on Thursday Island. I have a very high regard for the work that he has done. I do not want to detract in any way from his work or the work of the Royal College. If the Leader of the Opposition is agreeable I shall seek to have incorporated in Hansard the Press statement that was cleared by the Royal College and me.

Mr E G Whitlam (WERRIWA, NEW SOUTH WALES) - The one you issued last night?

Mr HUNT - Yes. I seek leave to have that statement incorporated in Hansard.
