Senator MILLEN (NEW SOUTH WALES) - In reference to the announcement by the Minister of Defence yesterday that a certain statement of mine had not been approved by the censor, has he seen the following editorial note in the Argus of this morning: -

Senator Pearcehas not been informed accurately or, at any rate, fully in reference to Senator Millen's first statement. The passages which it is said were calculated to give information to the enemy were actually passed by the censor for publication in the Argus. We hold absolute proof of this, which Senator Pearce may see .if he so desires.

If the Minister has not seen the paragraph, will he ascertain how it was that his officers ventured to place him in possession of inaccurate information?
