Sir Wilfrid Kent Hughes (CHISHOLM, VICTORIA) - I wish to ask the Prime Minister a question, particularly in view of the request made yesterday by the Leader of the Opposition concerning overseas delegations. When the Australian Labour Party delegation led by the Deputy Leader of the Opposition visited South East Asia in the middle of last year, did the Australian Government pay the fares or expenses, or were these paid by the Singapore Government? Was the invitation to the members of the Australian Labour Party issued by Mr. Lee Kuan Yew, the leader of the Singapore Government? What facilities to travel by aircraft of the Royal Australian Air Force as far as Ubon were granted to them? Having reached Ubon, which is within 30 miles of the southern border of Laos, was there anything to prevent them from visiting South Vietnam, if they had wished to do so?
