Mr HAROLD HOLT - The honourable gentleman had indicated, not to me, but to the Party, his concern on this matter, and therefore I have taken the trouble to get such information as I could so that it would be in as precise a form as honourable gentlemen would require it to be given in this place. Dr Lancaster Jones, I am informed, is a Fellow in Sociology in the Research School of Social Sciences at the Australian National University. His article is regarded in academic circles as an important and serious contribution to the study of social stratification in Australia. A similar study on Sydney was published by Mr A. A. Congalton in 1961, and last year Dr Jones published a shorter study of a similar sort on Canberra. Studies of this type, I am informed, are common overseas. The article appears to be the result of a continuing research programme on social stratification being undertaken by the Department of Sociology.

Mr Uren - My Speaker, I rise to order. This is a blatant disregard of question time which is set aside for questions without notice. This clearly is a question on notice.
