Mr SPEAKER -Does the honourable member claim to have been misrepresented?

Mr O'KEEFE - Yes. In a circular letter under the hand of George Romeyko and distributed.I understand, to all members of the Commonwealth Parliament, allegations have been made against me regarding an alleged association with Mrs Romeyko, a former storekeper of Moonan Flats, and as such a constituent of mine. Reference is made in the circular to matrimonial proceedings Romeyko v. Romeyko. This case was in fact a child custody case and not divorce proceedings, and I was in no way associated with nor aware of the litigation. The allegations are completely scurrilous and false in that they reflect not only on my personal integrity but also on that of His Honour Mr Justice Selby and the court.

The statutory declaration of Miss Luba Marianne Romeyko is also completely untrue. The suggestion of visits to the Rose Bay property and a personal association with Mrs Romeyko is entirely false.
