Mr HAYLEN (PARKES, NEW SOUTH WALES) - Is the Prime Minister to make a national television appearance on Sunday next? Is he being interviewed by a panel of three journalists? Did he call for the names of the members of the panel and eliminate the name of Mr. Denis Warner? Did his veto succeed, and was another journalist placed on the panel?

Why did the Prime Minister demand the right to select his own interviewers for this nation-wide television hook-up? In his cricketing terms, did he want a good, tough test, or did he want under-arms to pat down the wicket?
