Mr DRURY (RYAN, QUEENSLAND) - Has the attention of the Deputy Prime Minister been directed to certain very debatable remarks that were made in this House last night, and to certain very grave charges that were made against leading members of the Queensland Government, including the Attorney-General? It was charged that the Attorney-General had received a bribe of £800, and that a bribe of £75,000 had been offered for the withdrawal of the bill for the registration of petrol stations. In view of these grave charges, does the Deputy Prime Minister consider it desirable or necessary that the text of last night's debate should be conveyed to the Premier of Queensland urgently in order that he may take such action as he may consider necessary?
