Senator GAIR (QUEENSLAND) - Because I recollect certain honourable senators being prevented from reading extracts from newspapers, I ask you, Mr President, whether Senator Murphy was in order in reading extracts from newspapers in connection with the telephone tapping or eavesdropping that is taking place. All I want to know is: What is the rule in connection with this? I do not like seeing some people being treated differently from others.

The PRESIDENT - I heard quite clearly and distinctly what Senator Murphy was saying. He had newspaper clippings on his desk, as he still has; but I did not detect his reading from the newspaper clippings.
