Senator BYRNE - I direct a question to the Minister for Works. In doing so I appeal to the Minister's concern for precision and accuracy, which is traditional in this chamber. During his reply to my colleague Senator O'Byrne who asked a question about His Excellency the Governor of New South Wales, Sir Roden Cutler, the Minister inadvertently indicated that the question had been asked by myself. Will the Minister be good enough to indicate that it was not I who asked the question?

Senator WRIGHT - If the purpose of the honourable senator's question as I understood it, although imperfectly heard, is to make clear that the question in which the name of Sir Roden Cutler. V.C.. was mentioned emanated from Senator Justin O'Byrne of Tasmania, let me affirm that it did and that it did not emanate from Senator Condon Byrne of Queensland. I think that anybody who reflected upon the performance of either senator would naturally put it into its right channel.
