Mr KILLEN (MORETON, QUEENSLAND) - Mr Speaker,I address a question to you. My question concerns the position of a journalist by the name of B. M. Everingham and I refer, without offence, to what I might describe as the Everingham affair. I ask: Will you accept my assurance that in no way do I seek to adjudicate upon any matter involving Mr Everingham? I further ask: Have charges been laid against Mr Everingham and was he given an opportunity to reply to those charges before his Press gallery pass was withdrawn? As representatives of the Gallery are in the Gallery by your leave and the leave of this House, I ask you: If no charges have been made against Mr Everingham will charges be laid against him in writing and will an opportunity be given to him to speak to them?

Mr SPEAKER - I intend to make a statement on this matter at the conclusion of question time.
