Mr WHITLAM (WERRIWA, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I ask the Prime Minister a question without notice. Last Wednesday the right honourable gentleman heard the Deputy Prime Minister say that a man whose company has a representative in the Parliamentary Press Gallery was himself a paid secret agent of a foreign government. He will have learned that the following day the Treasurer said that having attended overseas conferences at ibc same time as this man, he had no grounds at all for believing him to be an agent. So that such allegations may be promptly and surely substantiated or refuted in tha tut ure, has the right honourable gentleman considered following the American legislation which requires lobbyists to register with and report to the Clerks of the Houses?
