Mr CALWELL (MELBOURNE, VICTORIA) - I desire to ask the Prime Minister two questions in one. Is it true, as stated in certain sections of the Press today, that the Government has decided to increase our commitment of troops in Vietnam and that we propose to send conscript troops to Vietnam next year? Secondly, is it true, as reported in one newspaper - a report which, frankly, I do not believe - that Senator Fulbright asked members of the Government parties and, presumably, the Government - to increase Australia's commitment of troops in Vietnam by another 6,500?
