Mr CALWELL - I would like to ask the Acting Minister for External Affairs to start again. I ask him: What will be the attitude of his Government if, at the next session of the United Nations in September, there is a majority vote in favour of seating red China in that organization as the Government of China? In other words, will the Australian Government's representatives walk out of the United Nations, or will they then recognize red China? I would ask him, too, what authority he has for saying that Mr. Chamberlain said the Formosans were expendable, other than a press report which Mr. Chamberlain disputes.

Sir GARFIELD BARWICK - I thought the Leader of the Opposition would know that a hypothetical question as to what might happen in the future, in regard to a matter of policy, is not in order.
