Senator MAUNSELL (QUEENSLAND) - My question is directed to the Leader of the Government in the Senate. Is it a fact that the Prime Minister will take part in the opening ceremony of the first cricket test in Brisbane? Is it also a fact that the invitation to attend was issued by the Lord Mayor of Brisbane without the approval of the Queensland Cricket Association or the Australian Cricket Board of Control?


The PRESIDENT -Unless the Leader of the Government in the Senate wishes to answer that question I will disallow it.


Senator MURPHY - The question relates to a future event. 1 do not know whether the Prime Minister will take part in the ceremony. We will have to wait and see what happens. If the Prime Minister has received an invitation, no doubt he has received it and acted on it in good faith, assuming that whoever sent him the invitation was entitled to do so.
