Mr ANTHONY -My question, which I direct to the Prime Minister, is supplementary to the question asked of him by the Deputy Leader of the Opposition. When the Prime Minister was asked why he considered the ASIO raid as the biggest mistake made by his Government he replied that his Government is not accident prone. The significance of that is that the raid was deliberate, planned and accepted by the Government but was still a mistake. I ask the Prime Minister: If it was a mistake, why did he keep that opinion to himself when defending the Attorney-General in this House? Why did he ask the House for its confidence in the AttorneyGeneral?

Mr WHITLAM - I did not keep it to myself.
