Senator PRIMMER —My question is directed to the Minister representing the Minister for Foreign Affairs. Is it a fact that in November 1975 correspondence from the Rt Hon. Gough Whitlam, addressed to the Queen, was intercepted in the mail room of the Department of Foreign Affairs? If that is so, will the Minister provide full details? Is it a fact that Mr Peter Henderson was the First Assistant Secretary in charge of the mail room at that time?

Senator GARETH EVANS —I do not know whether what Senator Primmer stated is a fact , but once again I shall have the matter checked out and seek a reply from the Minister for Foreign Affairs.
