Mr BURY (Wentworth) .- I should like to refer to some of the remarks made a few minutes ago by the honorable member for Reid (Mr. Uren), who is continually complaining about the use of smear techniques. Normally, I ignore such remarks, but as they were permitted by you, Mr. Temporary Chairman, I am obliged to speak in reply to them. I assure honorable members that 1 have no shares in any company either involved, or likely to be involved, in this legislation. I have no other financial connexions in any way with any companies likely to be affected in the least degree. If I did speak in this chamber on an occasion where financial interests of mine were involved, I would certainly divulge that fact beforehand.

I have received a number of representations on this subject from a good many of my constituents. Since I agree with them, and my views are in harmony with theirs - and I hope that this will always be considered legitimate in this Parliament - I have brought forward those views which, as I say, m any case closely coincide with my own.
