MURDER OF ASSISTANT COMMTSSTONER WINCHESTER

The Opposition supports the statements by the Minister for Justice, Senator Tate, concerning the murder of Assistant Commissioner Winchester.

In particular, we support Senator Tate's statement that such an execution is intolerable and that the assassin must be hunted down and brought to justice.

The Opposition will also support the offering of a

substantial reward if the authorities believe this will help in the investigation.

We will also support the Government in any action needed to stamp out violent crime, particularly crimes related to the drug trade and the activities of organised crime.

I have written to Senator Tate informing him of the

Opposition's full support on these matters.
