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

Mr JAMES - My word I do. In an article headed 'Silence on Lockheed Papers9 appearing in Things I Hear published on 12 November the following appears, and I will not quote all of the article:

It is many weeks since the Lockheed aircraft bribery scandal broke in the U.S. Its repercussions were felt in Japan, The Netherlands and many other countries. Opposition Member James attempted to extend the uproar to Australia with charges against the late Senator Paltridge, who was Minister for Civil Aviation at a relevant dme. He drew no results, other than criticism of himself for the way he made his charges.

The article continues. At no time have I made any reference inside or outside the House to the Lockheed scandal which is known world wide. I have been misrepresented and my character has been impugned.

Suggest corrections
