Mr DALY (Grayndler) (Minister for Services and Property and Leader of the House) All I seek is leave of the House to have incorporated in Hansard the findings of the Committee, which I think might well be recorded as part of the proceedings of this debate.

Mr SPEAKER -Is leave granted? There being no objection, leave is granted. (The document read as follows):

The findings of the Committee are as follows:

(i)   That a breach of privilege and a contempt of the House of Representatives occurred when -

(a)   an unknown person, on Tuesday, 18 September 1973, made available to Mr N. E. O'Reilly, a copy of the draft report on Stabilisation of Meat Prices,

(b)   Mr N.E. O'Reilly transmitted his article to the 'Sun' on Tuesday, 18 September 1973, and

(c)   the article was published in the 'Sun' newspaper on Tuesday, 18 September 1973.

(ii)   That Mr B. J. Tier, Editor of the 'Sun', and Mr N. E. O'Reilly, journalist employed by the Sun', are both guilty of a contempt of the House of Representatives.
