Senator COLLINGS (QUEENSLAND) - In the meantime wo shall have to send to Japan for information?

Senator Sir GEORGE PEARCE - The honorable senator is incorrect in saying that. It is true that statements on the subject of trade treaties appear from time to time in the Japanese press, but some of them are not in accordance with the facts. Such statements emanate from persons and bodies who assume the right to speak for the Government of that country - a habit which is not confined to Japan. So far, neither the government of Japan nor the Government of the Commonwealth is in a position to make a statement as to the stage which the negotiations have reached.
