Senator BISHOP - During question time yesterday Senator Drake-Brockman requested that I table the file relating to the entry into Australia of the Dungca family. In reply I promised that I would do all I could to facilitate the tabling of the documents referred to. I now advise the Senate that Senator Douglas McClelland and I, in the company of Senator Drake-Brockman, viewed the complete file. Later, with Senator Drake-Brockman, I discussed the file with the Leader of the Opposition, Senator Withers. We all agree that for the reason that the file contains a reference which may damage individuals it should not be tabled. I add that there is nothing in the file which reflects on any departmental officer or on any member of the Parliament or the staff.
