Mr MCMAHON - If the honourable gentleman had listened and understood - this is the second time I have had to use this phrase - he would have realised that the question had in fact been answered yesterday and, I believe, the day before. If he looks in Hansard he will see the answer. I repeat that implicit in all the questions asked by the Opposition is that it believes in the use of force and violence to achieve-

Dr Everingham - I rise to order. If the Minister's answer is relevant to my question he is implying that I am advocating the right to use violence. I object and ask that he withdraw that statement.

Mr SPEAKER - There is no point of order.

Mr MCMAHON - I finish on this note: If honourable members opposite, or some of them, wish to deny the accuracy of this implication it would be wise of them to make their position well known in the House.

Dr Everingham - That is exactly what I was doing and you, Mr Speaker, ruled me out of order.

Mr SPEAKER - The honourable member has asked his question. There are many questions asked in this House seeking information. The honourable member asked for information and although the information given may have been greater than the honourable member sought, the answer was relevant to the question.
