Senator YOUNG (SOUTH AUSTRALIA) -Is the Leader of the Government in the Senate aware that Mr

Whitlam 's breaking of his promise to the Premier of South Australia 'that the wine tax would be repealed and not replaced with another impost' has placed the South Australian Premier, to use his own words, in an intolerably embarrassing position? Does the Leader accept the fact that Mr Dunstan has been placed in an intolerably embarrassing position by the Federal Government's actions in taxing the wine and brandy industry?

Senator MURPHY -This matter has been aired in this place and outside. Everyone is aware of what has been said by the distinguished Premier of South Australia, Mr Dunstan. The honourable senator has heard what has been said on the matter by the Prime Minister of Australia. I have nothing to add to it.
