Mr WARD (EAST SYDNEY, NEW SOUTH WALES) - Has the Prime Minister's attention been directed to a public statement by the honorable member for Chisholm, in which he attributed his removal from the Cabinet in 1956 to the activities of intriguing public servants in Canberra? Is it a fact that the only person able to initiate or take action to remove or dismiss a member of the Cabinet is the Prime Minister himself? In view of the obvious implications that the Prime Minister was either influenced by, or was a party to, such intrigue, will the Prime Minister make a statement as to the accuracy or otherwise of the allegation of the honorable member for Chisholm?
