Mr FOSTER (STURT, SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - I desire to direct a question to the Prime Minister. I preface my question by saying that the Prime Minister will be aware of 2 previous questions directed to him regarding the Everard Park situation. Hansard is full of matters which the Prime Minister is looking at and considering and to which he may give a reply. I ask my question because of the reply the Prime Minister gave me on 17th August. Will he table all the relevant documents on the Everard Park transaction? Will he have the matter made the subject of a full report to this House so that a debate may ensue, in conformity with the reply he gave me on 17th August this year?

Mr McMAHON - I made it clear that the negotiations with regard to Everard Park were deliberately put into the hands of officials of government departments and were left there. I see no reason in the world why these papers should be tabled. If the honourable member has any suspicions, he is under an obligation and a duty to me to let me know what they are. If he feels there are suspicions, I will do my best to try to remove them from his brain.
