Mr GILES (Angas) - I, too, treat this as a most serious matter and I wish to say only 2 things. I have said them already, but I think it is right that I should repeat them. An afternoon paper - without actually naming it, but it is here if anybody wishes to see it - quoted quite fully the sort of news that has been relayed to the House by the Minister. The 1.30 p.m. radio news did the same thing. If I am in contempt of the House - and I trust that I am not - it is because I produced a Press release on the basis of those 2 announcements, perhaps in error of proper procedure - maybe that is so - because of my complete concern for my own electorate and my own growers on this matter, and I do not apologise for that concern.
