Mr FAIRBAIRN (FARRER, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I direct a question to the Minister for External Affairs. In view of the fact that the Soviet bloc has refused to pay any of the costs of the United

Nations forces in the Congo, to the consequent financial embarrassment of the United Nations, will the right honorable gentleman inform the House whether it has been proposed that Australia and the democracies should increase their contributions to the United Nations? Does the right honorable gentleman feel that some of the present United Nations costs of administration are excessive or extravagant?
