Mr HAROLD HOLT - I do not know that I am fully informed on this matter, but, as I understand the position, the members of the delegation exercised their travel privileges inside Australia to reach Darwin. No Government funds were used in travel from that point onwards. A Dakota aircraft of the Royal Australian Air Force was provided for travel from Butterworth to Ubon and return.

Mr Whitlam - We visited all Australian units in the area.

Mr HAROLD HOLT - 1 am not going into that. 1 am trying to answer the question that was asked of me. The invitation was, I gather, extended by the Prime Minister of Singapore directly to the delegation. As to the visit to Vietnam, I understand that if a visa is secured there is no barrier preventing entry to that country.
