(1)   Was the Canberra home of Mrs Dalton raided and searched by Commonwealth Police in December 1967.

(2)   Did the Commissioner of Police who authorised the raid inform the officers making the raid that the search was necessary as Mrs Dalton was expecting at any moment a serious attack upon a senior politician and the search was for further information. .

(3)   Did Mrs Dalton on 17th December 1967 warn Commonwealth Police Headquarters of the imminent danger to a senior parliamentarian from subversive sources.

(4)   Was Mrs Dalton on that occasion ordered from Police Headquarters by the Deputy Chief of Police.
