Senator COHEN (VICTORIA) - I direct a question to the Minister representing the Minister for External Affairs. Has the Minister seen a statement reported to have been made in Sydney by a Mr. Oanh, a leading figure in the South Vietnamese scene, to the effect that three South Vietnamese persons who sought a negotiated settlement of the present war, comprising a doctor, a professor and another person, had probably been dropped out of an aircraft without parachutes over North Vietnam? Mr. Oanh was also reported to have said that this was one of those things in war. Has the Minister any comment to make on this extraordinarily callous attitude expressed by a visitor to Australia?
