Sir ROBERT MENZIES - I have not seen the observations mentioned by the honorable gentleman. The honorable gentleman is himself under a misapprehension. We are not circulating the pamphlet to a lot of school children. Heaven forbid. We are distributing it, and sending more copies on application, to a great variety of people. We are sending it to leaders in churches, in business, in universities and in schools. The headmaster of a school gets it; the children do not. It is for the headmaster's information, so that he may know something about the situation.

Mr Pollard - How many copies?

Sir ROBERT MENZIES - If he wants more copies, he asks for them.

Mr Pollard - How many does he get?

Sir ROBERT MENZIES - If he wants more copies than those sent to him, he asks for them. I am sure that honorable gentlemen opposite will be fascinated to know that over the last two or three days the Department has received requests from school headmasters and church leaders for an additional 2,000 copies of the pamphlet. The honorable member for Newcastle will be delighted to know that we have even received a request for additional copies from Newcastle Committee for International Cooperation and Disarmament.
