Senator GEORGES - I ask the Minister representing the Minister for the Interior a question which follows on from a question asked by Senator Wheeldon. I inform the Minister that the person in possession of the televising equipment and the recording equipment at the demonstration was a member of the Police Force. He indicated that to me. Will the Minister take into account that this practice, which is admitted by the Police Force, would intimidate those people who wanted to take an interest in what those miners had to say today and could intimidate any person who wished to attend this or any peaceful demonstration? Can the Minister seek a statement from the Minister for the Interior as to the new policy on both televising and recording of demonstrations?

Senator COTTON - The honourable senator seeks through me information from the responsible Minister on this episode which was referred to by Senator Wheeldon and to which he has added some information himself. I shall ask the responsible Minister for that information.
