Senator WEBSTER (VICTORIA) - I draw the attention of the Attorney-General to the fact that there are a number of questions on the notice paper directed to him that have been there since April of this year. In particular, I draw his attention to one asked by myself on 1 1 April 1 973 which asks:

What is the official procedure for the declassification of official matters?

What is the difficulty in answering that question?

Senator MURPHY -I will look into the matter of whether the question should be answered. The question is a very wide one.

Senator Webster - No, it is not.

Senator MURPHY - It is a very wide one. If the honourable senator simply wants the question answered in the same wide terms, it would be easy enough to do that.
