Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER (Mr Lucock - There is no substance in the point of order. I suggest that the House come to order. I remind the honorable member for Hindmarsh, the honorable member for Hunter and other honorable members of the words of Mr. Speaker just before he vacated the Chair.

Mr ANTHONY - It seems quite obvious that the greatest duty that I can perform for this country of mine is to put the facts honestly before the people of the country as a counter to the subversive elements which are trying to confuse the issues involved in Vietnam. As I said, this is a horrible war. It is a sneaky, poisonous war, with highly organised subversion and insurrection against the people of South Vietnam, with terror and sabotage carried on with the greatest stealth, lt began a number of years ago with a clandestine infiltration of innocent people by highly trained and disciplined Communist cadres trained in North Vietnam, whose duty it was by every means possible to bring about the overthrow of the existing form of government and replace it with a Communist one.

Mr Clyde Cameron - Why does the Minister not join up?
