Dr MACKAY (EVANS, NEW SOUTH WALES) - My question is addressed to the Attorney-General. Has his attention been drawn to the attacks made by the Leader of the Opposition on the integrity of the courts in New Guinea and alleging racial discrimination? In particular, will he examine incidents-

Mr Whitlam - I rise to order. I submit that such a question is out of order. The Standing Orders say that questions shall not contain statements of fact unless they can be authenticated. The matters which the honourable member purports to state cannot be authenticated. They are not authentic.
