Mr LYNCH (FLINDERS, VICTORIA) - I ask the Prime Minister: In view of the Attorney-General's claim that there has been and still is overwhelming and incontestable evidence of Croatian terrorist activities by organisations and individuals, will the Prime Minister direct the AttorneyGeneral to institute proceedings and thereby establish the adequacy and sufficiency of the evidence he claims to have? If not will the Prime Minister clearly explain what must be regarded as an abandonment of duty by the Attorney-General in his Government?

Mr WHITLAM - At last Australia has an Attorney-General who is intent on doing his duty to see that Australia is not subjected to attacks on individuals, public and private, and is not made the base for attacks on other countries. The present Attorney-General, my Attorney-General, is unquestionably doing his duty to see that the full rigour of the law is applied to those who flout it.
