NEW SOUTH WALES ELECTIONS
Comment bythe Prime Minister, Mr John Gorton
It will be some days before the picture in New South
Wales is entirely clear, but there is every indication that the
Liberal/ Country Party Government has been returned for a third
term of office, The Liberal/ Country Party administration has provided
six years of stable and progressive government and my congratulations
to Mr Askin on what would appear to be his new mandate.
I look forward to continuing to work closely with Mr
Askin in the best interests of New South Wales and of Australia.
