Mr DEAKIN - The investigation Has disclosed that there were only two copies of the motion, one in my possession under lock and key, for the Governor-General, which has not been opened even by myself, and the other, which was gone through by the Minister and myself, was in the possession of the Comptroller-General of Customs, also under lock and key. Neither of those copies could have been seen by a third person, and, of course,no information as to their contents was given to the press or to other persons by either the Minister or myself.
