Mr STOKES (MARIBYRNONG, VICTORIA) - My question, which is addressed to the Prime Minister, refers to an article published in the 'Australian and

New Zealand Journal of Sociology' which was contributed by Dr E. Lancaster Jones, a Fellow of the Australian National University, and which dealt with the social standing of each of Melbourne's, suburbs. As the findings of Dr Jones have given a great deal of offence to a great many people, including certain religious groups - some of these matters were mentioned by my friend and colleague, the honourable member for Lalor, speaking on behalf of his angry constituents in the debate on the motion for the adjournment of the House last night - and as the Government is currently being blamed for this research, I ask the right honourable gentleman: Can he say whether this research was carried out at the Government's request or whether it was an independent undertaking of the gentleman concerned?

Mr McIVOR (GELLIBRAND, VICTORIA) - A Dorothy Dix question.
