Senator KEEFFE (Queensland) - 1 did not intend to enter into this debate, but I want to make a minute's contribution in order to ask the Minister for Works (Senator Wright) whether the letter that is alleged to have been sent from Mr Malcolm Fraser will also be tabled with the documents that the Minister will table tomorrow.

Senator WRIGHT(Tasmania - Minister for Works) - by leave - It has already been stated that no letter was written by Mr Malcolm Fraser to the Department of Foreign Affairs or to the department for which he was then the Acting Minister.

Senator Cavanagh - Was there a minute?

Senator WRIGHT - Just pardon me. But on the departmental papers he made an entry of 2 queries, and after the exchange of departmental correspondence on those queries - the queries being on a submission dated 3rd February - the Minister obtained further information by correspondence and he minuted his agreement to the submission on 9th February. AH of this will appear in the papers tomorrow.
