Mr WHITLAM (WERRIWA, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I ask the Minister foi External Territories whether he will obtain and table the text of the statement made al the Waigani seminar by the ViceChancellor of the University of Papua and New Guinea, formerly the Assistant Administrator of the Territory, concerning the interference by the Administration with the proceedings and deliberations of the House of Assembly select committees, the present one and the last one, on constitutional development. Will the Minister also make a ministerial statement on the matter so that before he introduces the legislation forecast in his ministerial statement on 4th March honourable members may discuss these disturbing allegations by a man of Dr Gunther's exceptionally long experience and high position?
