Mr CHIFLEY -I. am certain that the two matters mentioned by the honorable gentleman are not related. I have already said that Pacific bases havebeen the subject of discussion in London as well as with the American Department of State. It has to be made clear that the view of the Australian Government in regard to anything that is done in the Pacific should have relation to an overall plan for the security of the Pacific. That applies particularly to the Southwest Pacific. No finality has been reached, and no final expression of opinion has been given officially by the United States Government.
