Senator HANNAN (VICTORIA) - Has the Minister for Defence had an opportunity to read the

Australian Labour Party's speakers' notes for iiic 1961 election campaign? If so, has he observed that although in this voluminous publication reference is made to unemployment, housing and other matters, the word " defence " is not mentioned? Does this mean that the Australian Labour Party had no defence policy in 1961? If it had not heard of defence as recently as 1961, is the Minister able to venture an explanation of the sudden synthetic interest in the subject now being displayed by honorable senators opposite?
