The Shadow Minister for Administrative Services, Senator Warwick Parer, said the Labor Party and its national secretary had lost all sense of perspective in their attempts to ban all political advertising at all times on radio and television.

Senator Parer said Mr Hogg had said that "There are no

absolute freedoms."

What he does not understand is that every Australian backed by the Liberal and National Parties will fight like hell to preserve the freedoms we do have.

Mr Hogg states that the Government is trying "to come to grips with how we put a lid on expenditure."

"It is the height of hypocrisy for Mr Hogg to give that as the major reason while he and his piglets were putting their collective snouts in the taxpayers pockets by advocating an increase of about $5 million in public funding to political parties.

"This will bring the total to approximately $18 million of taxpayer funding for political parties.
