Mr SCHOLES (Corio) - I think that this is a farcical situation, lt is beneath the dignity of the Committee to be discussing it at this time but I think the facts should be put before the Parliament. The Prime Minister (Mr McMahon), the Leader of the House (Mr Swartz) and the Leader of the Opposition (Mr Whitlam) were behind and slightly to the right of the Chair at between 8.5 and 8.10 last night within 10 minutes of the Opposition Party meeting adjourning. I could not say what they were discussing, but they were there and they discussed certain matters. Anyone who says they were not there was either nol in the House or is deliberately trying to mislead the Committee.
