1 Mr WHITLAM - I ask the Prime Minister a question without notice. My question arises from the right honourable gentleman's statement yesterday afternoon that he would seek an opportunity to discuss with the Minister for Air how the matter of the missing manifests developed. He said:

As a result of that discussion I hope to make such further information as arises available to the public and to members of both Houses of this Parliament.

I ask: When did he decide that he would seek an opportunity to discuss the matter with the Minister? In view of the fact that there are scheduled air services leaving Johannesburg at 11. IS a.m. on both Monday and Wednesday of each week and arriving in Sydney at 11.10 a.m. on Tuesday and Thursday of each week, what steps has the Prime Minister taken to bring the Minister home from the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association conference in Uganda so that the Minister can discuss the matter with the Prime Minister and give an explanation to the Parliament?
