Mr Donald Cameron (GRIFFITH, QUEENSLAND) asked the Prime Minister, upon notice:

(1)   Has his attention been drawn to a statement attributed to the Council of Commonwealth Public Service Organisations, that he had shown a willingness to vilify and prejudge senior public servants.

(2)   If he has seen the statement, (a) can he say what is the complaint of the Council which led to the statement and (b) has he made any reply in response to the statement.

(3)   If he has made a reply, what was it.

Mr Whitlam - The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

(1)   (2) and (3). Such a statement, if made, would certainly not be true and would be seen to be untrue from the answers I gave the House to Questions Without Notice on 5 and 12 April 1973 (Hansard pages 1121-1122 and '1370-1371).
