Senator KEEFFE (QUEENSLAND) - My question is directed to the Leader of the Government in the Senate. Is the Minister aware that the Premier of Queensland has refused to indicate to the Queensland Parliament the source of funds being utilised by the Queensland National Liberal Party Government in its 'No' campaign on the current referendum? Will the Minister institute inquiries to ascertain whether any Commonwealth funds are being used in the campaign by the Queensland Government?

The PRESIDENT - The last part of that question lies within the ministerial scope of the Leader of the Government.

Senator MURPHY -I will look into the matter. If the honourable senator can assist me with any matter which might indicate that Commonwealth funds are being used by the Liberal Party in the referendum I shall certainly pursue it.
