Mr GORTON (HIGGINS, VICTORIA) (Prime Minister) - I am not aware of the intricacies of this matter to which the honourable member refers but I think that on this whole question - and I would not confine it to one particular organisation which may be out of favour with the Opposition but would relate it to any such organisation or individuals in it - I cannot do better than to paraphrase remarks which I made on this situation some years ago and before I became Prime Minister; those remarks being that we would not wish to see imported into Australia the old, sad feuds of Europe. We wish people to come here from whatever organisation they might have come and to become Australians, and settle any questions they have without resort to violence or, indeed, without resort to seeking to take over the streets.
