The PRESIDENT - When an honorable senator asks for leave to make a statement based on a newspaper paragraph, it is assumed that he himself is affected by the paragraph. So far as I can judge from the statement which the honorable senator has read, he is not implicated. Unless he is personally concerned to the extent of having been misrepresented or misreported by a press statement, an honorable senator should not adopt the procedure that has been adopted by Senator James McLachlan this morning.

Senator Sir GEORGE PEARCE - I shall have inquiries made and see if it is possible to comply with the honorable senator's request.
