Sir ROBERT MENZIES - Both documents were prepared by the Department of External Affairs. The first one to which the honorable member has referred is a very full document containing a lot of basic material. The view taken by the Department of External Affairs was that the document is much too long for general reading, although I would be' very happy to think that everybody in Australia would take the opportunity to read it. The second document was designed to be much shorter and, to that extent, more readable. To the extent that it contains statements from speeches, they were selected as statements of fact and of policy.
