MR HUMPHRIES: Mr Temporary Deputy Speaker, there will be more words in Hansard from those opposite than there will be from me in this speech. Those opposite are running a line that they are not getting enough information about - - -
Mr Stanhope: Where is the Prime Minister's letter?
MR HUMPHRIES: Mr Temporary Deputy Speaker, I ask for a bit of protection here. I am having constant interjections from those opposite. We are having this line run all the time from those opposite that they are not getting enough information. The fact is that they have not had the time and they have not had the chance to read it all because they have had so much information. I think that the garbage, the lies and the misrepresentations that we are having from those opposite speak for themselves in this matter. They are running a litany of lies on this subject and it is time that they started to acknowledge that the Government has tabled not just ample material on this matter but, in fact, a groaning amount of material, given the boxes of information that were called for and tabled only in the last few days.
That the motion (Mr Quinlan's ) be agreed to.
