Mr ANTHONY (RICHMOND, NEW SOUTH WALES) -Can the Prime Minister now assure the House that the former Minister for Minerals and Energy did not mislead the House in relation to the ACTU-Solo affair? Will the Prime Minister now accept the assurance of the Secretary of the Australian Council of Trade Unions, Mr Souter, that the Government was not deceived over the price being paid by the ACTU?

Mr WHITLAM - I have to repeat yet again that I have heard or read nothing that would change my view about the findings of Mr Justice Collins, the royal commissioner on petroleum, in respect of this matter. If the right honourable gentleman or any other honourable gentleman has views or still more facts on this matter it is, I believe, his duty to put them to the royal commissioner. I have no reason whatever to doubt the accuracy and the wisdom of the findings of the royal commissioner.
