Senator MAUNSELL (QUEENSLAND) - My question is directed to the Leader of the Government in the Senate. Can he inform the House whether Mr Ditchburn who was appointed to the Films Board of Review, is or has been an importer of films?

Senator MURPHY - Of course I, like most other members of this House, became aware of the scurrilous pamphlets and circulars which were being put around the place.

Senator Keeffe - By the Country Party.

Senator MURPHY - It is not for me to say out of which offices they came. I am not prepared to accuse the Opposition on the basis of the rumours which have been spread around this place. The information which has been given to me about that indicates that the answer is no. I think that the honourable senator ought not to be suggesting -

Senator Maunsell - I am not suggesting; I am asking a question.

Senator MURPHY - Certainly he has not in the terms that have been circulated, and the rumour and the gossip. As far as I am aware there is absolutely no foundation to that or to the scurrilous kinds of additions which have been made to it.
