The PRESIDENT -Is leave granted? There being no objection, leave is granted.

Senator Sir KENNETH ANDERSON - I am sure that I have been misrepresented by the Attorney-General (Senator Murphy). I was very careful in my choice of words in my question to ask for some direct answers. I used the words 'or in relation to a particular Bill'. With great respect to the Attorney-General, I suggest that he did not give an answer to my question. If it will help him, I will send copies of my question around to him. I might find myself in agreement with many of the things that he said about the generality of divorce. But that was not the question that I asked him. I was asking with particularity about a particular Bill being referred to a Senate committee. Finally, there was the crunch question which dealt with the evidence taken by the Committee being taken in camera and not being available to members of the public who he says want to know all about it. I want to know what happened and what evidence was given. That was the whole import of my question, not that other part of the reply, which we had yesterday from another source, and which, with great respect, the Presiding Officer dealt with very properly.
