Senator PRIMMER (VICTORIA) - My question is addressed to the Attorney-General. By way of preface I say that the matter has disturbed me greatly. Can the Minister give any reason why Commonwealth police would refuse to recognise a young man out on bail who has a duty to report to them daily when that young man approached them on his own at Warnambool on Saturday morning last and why, when approached by the same young man in company with a member of this Parliament the same Commonwealth police agreed to recognise him?

Senator GREENWOOD - I would suggest that the honourable senator put his question on the notice paper. I have no knowledge of the facts. I am not quite sure what is comprehended by the word 'recognise' in the context in which he used it. I assure him that if in the question he puts on notice he gives some more details I will get the answer as soon as I can.

The PRESIDENT - I call Senator Keeffe to ask the last question.
