Mr Viner - On 15 April 1980 (Hansard, page 1692) Mr Lionel Bowen directed a question without notice to me, in my capacity as Minister representing the Attorney-General, as to whether the current ASIO investigation of the Office of National Assessments would extend to the statement in an article in the National Times of 13-19 April 1980 that an officer of the Australia Security Intelligence Organisation visited Israel to liaise with MOSSAD, the Israeli intelligence service.

I am informed that the matter raised by Mr Bowen is currently under investigation by the Australian Security Intelligence Organisation.
