Mr FRY —I give notice that, on the next day of sitting, I shall move:

That this House-

(1) supports the view that every Member of this Parliament is a loyal citizen of the Commonwealth;

(2) calls on the Attorney-General to carry out a detailed examination of all information kept on files or in computer data banks of all security organisations in Australia concerning any Member of this Parliament;

(3) further calls on the Attorney-General to issue instructions to have all such information removed and destroyed unless he believes that the destruction of the information would constitute a threat to the security of this country, and

(4) requests that the Attorney-General undertake this action as a matter of urgency so that no Member of this Parliament should leave the Parliament with their reputation impugned by unjustified security reports kept without their knowledge in secret files of security agencies.
