Mr CASEY (Minister for External Affairs) - Mr. Eugene Gorman, a distinguished man of law in Victoria, was appointed about two months ago at the request of the Government to investigate the views, opinions and evidence that Hungarian refugees in this country had to offer on the events in Hungary in October and November last, of which they had personal knowledge. Mr. Gorman carried out this task very effectively in the past six weeks. He interviewed large numbers of Hungarian refugees in all the main centres where they are concentrated, and he presented his report to me in the last week. I will take an early opportunity of tabling the report in the House and of telling the House briefly the principal contents of it. I believe it is a particularly interesting report and I think it will be of considerable value to the United Nations commission of five, of which Australia is a member, which was appointed to investigate the terrible events in Hungary towards the end of last year.
