MEDIA RELEASE

STATEMENT BY THE HONOURABLE ANDREW S. PEACOCK, M j j f SHADOW MINISTER FOR FOREIGN AFFAIRS M M

I firmly believe the interests of the Liberal Party

and its supporters will be best served by retaining

Mr. Snedden as Leader and giving him the support that

he has always given to others in the past.

Consistent with this belief I support Mr. Snedden

unequivocally in any leadership challenge and I

believe he will defeat that challenge.

This will allow the Liberal Party to get on with its

prime task - defeating the Labor Government.

Only a united Party, with broad appeal to all

sections of the people, can bring down what is without

doubt the worst Government we have ever had to suffer.

As to my own position, should the Party leadership

be declared vacant, despite the best efforts of all of

us who support Mr. Snedden, I wish to make it quite

clear that if that situation arises I will stand

against Mr. Fraser.
