Senator MARRIOTT (TASMANIA) - -By way of brief preface to my question to the Leader of the Government in the Senate I state that it is well known that 25th April 1965 will be the fiftieth anniversary of Anzac Day, and a pilgrimage to Gallipoli is to be made. Is it not a fact that that day will also be remembered as the twenty-fifth anniversary of the arrival of members of the second Australian Imperial Force in Palestine to take part in the Second World War? Will the Minister discuss with the Prime Minister the possibility of a suitable delegation visiting Palestine in commemoration of that day? I am assured that the Government of Israel would welcome the Australian visitors.
