Senator DRAKE-BROCKMAN (WESTERN AUSTRALIA) - I ask a question of the Leader of the Government in the Senate. Is he aware that the Prime Minister yesterday refused to say what action he would take if the prices and incomes referenda on 8 December were carried? Did the Prime Minister say that he would not make firm commitments until after the industrial peace conference on 1 1 and 12 December? Does this not indicate that the Prime Minister is deliberately asking the people to vote yes on the referenda issues without knowing what is involved? Why does the Prime Minister choose to keep the electors in ignorance on 2 issues which are extremely important to the people and the nation?
