Mr HAMER (ISAACS, VICTORIA) - My question is directed to the Prime Minister. In his answer to a question asked last week by the honourable member for Parramatta about one of the previous Government's letters to the Yugoslav Government, did the Prime Minister attempt to justify his description of that letter as a lie by claiming that not to tell the whole truth is to tell a lie? In his repeated evasions of questions about the reasons for Senator Murphy's midnight raid on the Australian Security Intelligence Organisation offices in Canberra - an evasion which continued in the debate which was gagged in this House this week - did the Prime Minister, by his own definition of the word, lie and lie, and lie again to this House? Will he now answer this question without lying, as he dennes the word? (Question not answered)
