Mr MENZIES - I was under the impression that on Tuesday of last week I made a statement about our policy on Laos. I direct the honorable gentleman's attention to it.

In Cuba events are, as yet, rather too uncertain to lend themselves to a statement in this House. As to West New Guinea, I am, as the honorable gentleman knows, engaged with my colleagues in discussions with a distinguished representative of Indonesia. Yesterday, he had a discussion with a number of Ministers. This morning, he had a further discussion with me, and, before he leaves Australia, I propose to have a further discussion with him because the time to be given to any one of these discussions is really rather brief.

I inform honorable members that when these discussions have concluded I propose to make a statement to the House about the matter under circumstances which will enable the House to discuss it.
