Mr MENZIES (KOOYONG, VICTORIA) (Prime Minister) - I have no official information on the matter, but I have, of course, read of it with great interest and with a feeling of deep sympathy for some of the unsuccessful competitors who are here. When I read about it, and saw that this vast sum of money had been given to a former Labour senator, obviously for services to the Soviet Union--

Mr Ward - Did you get any monetary award with your Iron Cross?

Mr MENZIES - You are one of those I was thinking of when I mentioned earlier my sympathy for the unsuccessful competitors here. I repeat that when I read about this matter I thought, remembering something of history, that after all this was all of a piece; that this was the latest example of the success of a unity ticket.
