Senator CAVANAGH -My question is directed to the Minister representing the Acting Attorney-General. Further to the answer given to me by the Attorney-General to question No. 2639, did the advice given to the Deputy Crown Solicitor on the incident involving two Customs officials who retained jewellery from a passenger's luggage inform the Deputy Crown Solicitor that a witness was available who was prepared to testify that during the search he saw both officers pick up and examine expensive jewellery from the luggage and heard them say, while putting such articles in their respective pockets: 'This will do for my wife'? Was the Deputy Crown Solicitor advised that some of the articles of jewellery were found at the home of each officer?

Senator CARRICK -I will bring the question to the attention of the Acting Attorney-General and seek his study of it and comment upon it.
