Mr MORRIS (SHORTLAND, NEW SOUTH WALES) -I ask the Prime Minister: Has the Australian Government been advised that European based banks which provide financial investment services to Arab investors have a vested interest in seeing that loans are not arranged from Arab nations outside those banking channels? Has his attention been drawn to discussions in Europe between the financial advisers of those banks and the Deputy Leader of the Opposition?

Mr WHITLAM - I have seen suggestions that the Deputy Leader of the Opposition on his overseas visits this year- I think there have been two- has been making inquiries of this character. I cannot vouch for them and I have not pursued them.

Mr Donald Cameron (GRIFFITH, QUEENSLAND) - Mr Speaker,I raise a point of order.
