Mr HOLTEN (INDI, VICTORIA) - Is the Minister for Foreign Affairs aware that the North Vietnamese Government is continuing blatantly to breach the article of the Vietnam peace agreement which requires the withdrawal of all foreign armed forces from Laos and Cambodia? If he is aware of this, as he surely must be, will he send an official note to the North Vietnamese Government indicating that the Australian Government supports this article and requesting the North Vietnamese Government to honour it forthwith?


Mr WHITLAM - Australia is not a party to the cease fire agreement between North Vietnam, South Vietnam and the other contending parties there. However, we certainly hope that they will observe the agreement which was signed months ago.
