Mr SNEDDEN - My question is directed to the Prime Minister. If there is speculation as to which was the correct version in the newspapers of the telex message from the Australian Security Intelligence Organisation, will the Prime Minister table the telex message? If he will not table the telex message, will he give the reasons for not doing so? Will he agree that, as he has given his version of the conversation with the DirectorGeneral on 17 March, when the DirectorGeneral goes before the Senate Select Committee on Civil Rights of Migrant Australians he ought to be free to give his version of the conversation he had with the Prime Minister on 17 March?

Mr WHITLAM -The Director-General of Security and I both realise that it is quite improper and it is unprecedented to reveal and to publicise security documents or conversations concerning security.
