Mr FALKINDER (FRANKLIN, TASMANIA) - My question is directed to the Minister acting for the Minister for External Affairs. As the position in Hungary is apparently by no means clear, will the Minister consider instructing the Australian delegate at the Security Council that, should the position deteriorate and the Russians again take control in Hungary, the Security Council should adopt every possible means to prevent wholesale and widespread reprisals, a pattern with which we have been regrettably familiar?

Sir PHILIP MCBRIDE - I will certainly take into consideration the suggestion made by the honorable gentleman if the position deteriorates as he has mentioned.
