Dr EVATT (BARTON, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I desire to ask the Minister for External Affairs a question following his answer yesterday first in relation to the dispute affecting the Suez Canal and, secondly, the special dispute between Israel and Egypt. He indicated certain general views, but I desire to ask him specifically whether Cabinet has considered, and, if not, whether it will consider, the advisability of the Australian Government taking positive action either in the United Nations, or by the procedure contained in the Charter for previous conciliation, to ensure that before actual war occurs an attempt is made at conciliation, or the United Nations organization is given an opportunity to resume discussion at the point where it was broken off.
