Mr MORRIS (Shortland) -The matter I wish to bring to the attention of Parliament tonight relates to the continuing saga in the Sydney Press of the activities of people labelled as right-wing extremists in the Liberal Party in the Sydney area. I am looking at a report which appeared in the Sydney Morning Herald of 5 March. In that report the Liberal member for Evans disowned his association with that kind of activity in Sydney area and in the same statement he disowns -

Mr Bourchier - I take a point of order! The honourable member is casting aspersions about so-called extreme right-wing Liberals. I wonder whether he will ever associate himself with extreme left-wing socialist communist Labor supporters.

Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER (Mr Lucock)Thereis no substance to the point of order.

Mr MORRIS - Mr Deputy Speaker,again the Liberal Party Whip has been a source of intimidation and disruption. I again seek your protection from him.

Mr Bourchier - I take a point of order. With due respect I do not think that type of remark is becoming a member of Parliament. A Whip or any other honourable member of this Parliament has the right to raise a point of order when he thinks that offensive terms are being used.
