Senator CORMACK (VICTORIA) - Because the Senate is jealous of the use to which regulatory power is put, I should be grateful, Mr. President, if you would permit me to ask a question of the Minister for Customs and Excise. It it a fact that regulatory power has been used to prohibit the importation into Australia of four issues of a United States magazine called "Fact"? If that is so, under what regulation has this power been exercised? I should like the Minister to say also whether a third allegation by the Australian monthly periodical " Nation " - the periodical which published the first two allegations - is true, namely, that the prohibition of importation has been made with a political bias.
