Parliament Recalled To Debate Loans Affair

On July 9, 1975, the House of Representatives was recalled for a special one-day sitting to debate the Overseas Loans Affair.

The Age had more documents and an editorial saying it was a time of national trial.

The Australian reported on attempts (ultimately successful) by the South Australia’s Labor Premier, Don Dunstan, to distance himself from the Whitlam government in an attempt to win his state election.

The Melbourne Sun covered the activities of Philip Cairns, son of the former Treasurer, Dr. Jim Cairns, who had been sacked the week before.

The Melbourne Herald also had more documents.
