PRESS STATEMENT NO. 25 Λ,'.

18 December 1 972

I am very pleased th the team that has been selected

to form the Labor Ministry.

With these men, the Australian Labor Party will be

able to implement the programs which it now has a mandate

to introduce.

Two features of today’s Caucus ballots stand out.

The first is the ready endorsement of the leadership

of Mr. Lance Barnard, Senator Lionel Murphy and Senator

Don Villesee, all of whom played a major role in Labor’s ·

road to victory.

The second is the fact that Caucus showed its support

for the fine work done by the members of the former Opposition

Executive by voting all of them into the Ministry on the first

ballot.

CANBERRA, A.C.T.
