Senator BISHOP -The Leader of the Government in the Senate may recall that on 6

March I raised a question with him, and I also referred it to you, Mr President, in which I referred to the issue which followed the Dunn incident and the Afghanistan incident. It appeared that the Prime Minister's criteria inhibited the flow of information to the members of the Parliamentary Research Staff. The Minister considered that the issue was an important one and promised to advise the Senate whether this was so. In view of the recent events which have occurred in the Library and which are generating some concern, I wonder whether the Minister can decide the question and let the Senate have the information.

Senator CARRICK -I well remember the question. I think Senator Bishop has asked me two questions on fairly related matters. I regret that we have not provided the information. I will see whether I can do so in the next few days.
