Senator WITHERS (WESTERN AUSTRALIA) -My question is directed to the Minister representing the Treasurer. Why was it necessary for Dr Cairns to take Miss Morosi with him to Sydney and then on to Melbourne last Friday? If Miss Morosi had declined a position on Dr Cairns' staff, who authorised her travel and on whose authority did she return to Canberra?

Senator WRIEDT (TASMANIA) (Minister for Agriculture) - I would have no knowledge of the matters that have been referred to by Senator Withers. I would not attempt to make any answer. I will refer the question to the Treasurer.

The DEPUTY PRESIDENT- I call Senator Mulvihill.

Senator MULVIHILL (NEW SOUTH WALES) - I direct a question to the Minister for Foreign Affairs -

Senator Murphy - Mr Deputy President-

The DEPUTY PRESIDENT-Is there a point of order?

Senator Murphy - No, there is not. I wish to say that if Senator Withers wishes to direct the question to me I have some information that will assist him.

Senator Greenwood - Mr Deputy President,I raise a point of order. The call was given to Senator Mulvihill and if Senator Murphy is not taking a point of order he ought not to be heard.

The DEPUTY PRESIDENT- Order! I call Senator Mulvihill.
