Dr EVATT - I desire to ask the Minister for External Affairs a question supplementary to the one that he has just answered. Is Australia committed in any way to the obligations assumed by the United Kingdom Government in relation to the dispute between Israel and Jordan?


Mr CASEY - That is not the kind of question that I like having to answer off hand, and I do so with great reservation. I would not believe that there is any obligation, even implied, on Australia, arising out of the United Kingdom-Jordan treaty. As I say, however, I give that reply with every personal reservation.
