Dr KLUGMAN (PROSPECT, NEW SOUTH WALES) - Has the attention of the Minister for External Territories been drawn to what was considered to be a strong attack last week by Mr Johnson, the Administrator of Papua New Guinea, on racial discrimination in European dominated clubs in Papua New Guinea? Mr Johnson said: There is no place for people with such attitudes which not only cause great personal offence but also gravely impair race relations'. Will the Minister inform Mr Johnson that he is not expressing the policy of this Government and draw his attention to the fact that, amongst others, the Minister for Education and Science, the Minister for Defence, the Minister for the Army, the present Prime Minister and the previous Prime Minister are all prominent members of the Melbourne Club which also practises racial discrimination?

Mr BARNES (MCPHERSON, QUEENSLAND) (Minister for External Territories) - With regard to the incident in Papua New Guinea, I support the Administrator in his remarks.
