Salient: Victoria University Students' Paper. Vol. 29, No. 14. 1966.



Mr. Barnes admitted in his statement that "I told Mr. Laurenson of the non-confidential information I had received."

Just what this information is was not stated. However, in giving evidence before executive the previous Friday, Mr. McKinley, president, National Party Club, was asked:

Q. What actually did Mr. Laurenson say Security said about Mr. Boshier?

A. What Mr. Laurenson said as I remember it was that as far as Security knew he was not a fellow traveller and not a Communist.

He also indicated that the information on Mr. Boshier dated back only to 1962.

It's incorrect to say that they only knew of his association with the Vietnam Committee—Mr. Laurenson knew this when he rang up.

At the same meeting. Mr. Logan was asked:

Q. Do you agree with Mr. McKinley's evidence about 1962 and not being a fellow traveller—he said those?

A. Yes. definitely.

Basing his action on this. Mr. Boshier has now called for the release of his file (see separate story).
