Mr McIVOR (GELLIBRAND, VICTORIA) - My question is directed to the Minister for External Affairs. I ask: Is it true that criticism has been levelled at the United States Administration for suppressing news about the war in Vietnam, particularly for suppression of the statement made by the Prime Minister of South Vietnam, Air Vice-Marshal Ky? Does the Minister agree with the view held by the South Vietnamese Prime Minister, who indicated that he was not anxious for any peace negotiations to take place until his regime had won the confidence of the peasants? Will the Minister say when it is expected that the confidence of the peasants will be won and when peace negotiations will take place?
