Senator GORTON (Victoria) (Minister for Works) .- Referring to that point, all I have to say is that it was the policy of the Australian Government to assist the fellow Commonwealth country of India when she was invaded by the Chinese. I say that, even if Senator Cavanagh says that the Indians were aggressively fighting the Chinese 80 miles inside the Indian border.: I" assure honorable senators that the Indian Government and the Indian people do not accept it as a fact that they were not invaded. They believe that they were invaded. They sent a mission out to the Australian Government to ask for help. They received that help and I am proud of the fact that they did.

Proposed expenditure noted.
