Sir ROBERT MENZIES (KOOYONG, VICTORIA) (Prime Minister) - If what the honorable gentleman wants is that we should sponsor the publication of a debate all I can tell him is that we already do that by publishing "Hansard". In any "Hansard" the people may read what is said on the other side of the Parliament by any section of the Opposition and what is said on this side.

Mr Hayden - Why is not something else done instead of putting out a booklet?

Sir ROBERT MENZIES - The honorable gentleman falls into the error of thinking that we are circulating something that is supposed to be in the nature of a debate. We are circulating this document to indicate where the Government of this country - there is only one Government of this country - stands on a matter for which the Government has to accept a major responsibility.
