Mr HUNT (GWYDIR, NEW SOUTH WALES) - My question also is addressed to the Minister for External Affairs. In view of the statements that have been made by the Leader of the Opposition and his associates and colleagues who support the Vietnam Moratorium can the Minister let me know the reason for the decision by the Governments of South Vietnam and the United States of America to engage the North Vietnamese and Vietcong forces in both the Parrot's Beak and the Fish Hook areas of Cambodia adjacent to South Vietnam? Secondly, can he inform the House in precise terms the objectives and purposes of these actions and whether the Government of Cambodia welcomes the joint South Vietnamese and United States actions?
