Mr HOLT (FAWKNER, VICTORIA) - Has the Prime Minister official confirmation of the rumour that the naval forces of the United States of America have had an impressive victory in the Pacific area?

Mr.CURTIN. - I hope to make a statement later in the day. I now say to the House and to all whom it may concern - including the press and the public - that announcements in respect of operations that may be the subject of a report - having occurred quite recently - and that may lead to further operations in the near future, should first come from those who have operational responsibility in the conduct of the war. honorable Members. - Hear, hear!
