Senator MULVIHILL - My question, which is directed to the Attorney-General, is supplementary to the one asked by Senator Murphy in relation to the various functions of the Attorney-General's Department. I ask him very clearly: Am I to understand that in all the material he has accumulated dealing with Croatian activities he does or does not monitor the journal 'Spremnost'? If he does monitor it does he blandly say that its editorials do not render the editor liable to prosecution because of their inflammatory attitudes and that the editorials are not creating a lot of the present unrest?

Senator GREENWOOD - I know that a tremendous amount of information has been collected by the Commonwealth Police, I have spoken to the Commonwealth Police about it. I have seen a lot of the material which the Commonwealth Police has. It is not only with regard to Yugoslav papers but with regard to papers of a number of migrant groups that investigations are made, because it is prudent to do so. I am not able to say, without further consultation with the Commonwealth Police, about the regularity or frequency of the investigations. I will take under advisement all that the honourable senator has said and give consideration to whether I should amplify the reply.
