Senator MURPHY (New South WalesAttorneyGeneral and Minister for Customs and Excise) - The Senator in charge of this matter, Senator Willesee, is not ignoring the honourable senator. In the course of affairs, as one knows, there are all sorts of matters, including high matters of state, to be attended to. Senator Willesee is not in the Senate chamber. That is the reason why a reply has not been given. I am given a note stating that a brief reply was forwarded to Senator Wright on 30 August 1973.

Senator Wright - Saying that a letter was received and I could expect an answer.

Senator MURPHY - The point that the honourable senator raises ought to be looked at. He is seeking an answer from Senator Willesee. He also mentioned receiving an opinion from the Attorney-General. Insofar as it concerns me, I will endeavour to expedite the matter for the honourable senator and see that he receives an answer.
