Senator HENTY (Tasmania) (Minister for Civil Aviation) (12:45 PM) . - I want to put the record straight on one point. The honorable senator referred to the Minister of the day whose administration covered housing. That was Senator Sir William Spooner who was then Minister for National Development. The honorable senator said that Senator Sir William Spooner had been dismissed. He should withdraw that statement as it is not correct. As everybody knows, Senator Sir William Spooner resigned his portfolio.

Senator Cavanagh - I was informed by a source that I thought was reliable that Senator Sir William Spooner had been dismissed. However, I would not submit that statement to a thorough investigation and I withdraw it.
