Dr J F Cairns (YARRA, VICTORIA) , - I wish to say a few words on what has been called the " battle of the pamphlets ". Last week the honorable member for La Trobe (Mr. Jess) asked the Prime Minister (Sir Robert Menzies) a question in which he suggested that I had written a pamphlet about Vietnam and that the pamphlet had been distributed in schools. Assuming this to be correct the honorable member asked the Prime Minister whether he would see to it that some action was taken to have a proper statement made on the matter for the benefit of school children. The first point I make is that the proposition in the question asked by the honorable member for La

Trobe was completely incorrect. I did write a pamphlet about the war in Vietnam and 30,500 copies of it were printed.


Mr Nixon - By whom?
