Mr SPEAKER -Does the Prime Minister claim to have been misrepresented?

Mr WHITLAM - Yes. I abstained from coming into the debate on the motion which has just been passed because I wanted to keep matters within the limits of relevancy as far as I could. However, there is one matter that the honourable member for Griffith (Mr Donald Cameron) stated which was quite without foundation. He made some reference to the Government's attitude or concessions or some such thing on the question of the recognition of the People's Republic of China and the exchange of diplomatic representatives with it. I thought I had answered questions on this subject on the notice paper. They were on the Senate notice paper and I do not have them with me. Honourable members who take the care to look at these questions which have been asked and answered will see that there is no foundation for the allegation that the honourable member made.
