Mr MENZIES (KOOYONG, VICTORIA) (Prime Minister) - 1 do not doubt that the description applied to recent events by the honorable member is substantially correct. There is no doubt, according to the information that we have received, that since the denigration of Stalin a very deep cleavage has developed in the Communist ranks, between Stalinists and non-Stalinists. No doubt this has given some encouragement to people who have for so long been enslaved, in effect, by the Soviet Union. From that point of view, 1 think that most of us will have deep sympathy with these movements. As to the particular proposals made by the honorable member, obviously they require thought - not a casual or quick answer.
