Mr CURTIN (WATSON, NEW SOUTH WALES) - The right honorable gentleman got that from a security officer.

Mr MENZIES - No; the Communist party wrote it and I am quoting its words precisely. The statement continued -

Every form of pressure should be exerted mi the Menzies Government with the object nut. only of preventing the ratification of the treaty, but also of further weakening and defeating the Government.

The campaign around the Japanese treaty should be a part of all our other campaigns, in particular those around .the return of the delegates from Berlin and the Carnival preparations.

Honorable members may draw their own inferences from these matters in accordance with the terms of the statement that I have just read to them.
