Senator COHEN (VICTORIA) - My question is directed to the Leader of the Government in the Senate. Has the Government noted the diplomatic initiative shown by the United Kingdom Government in sending Mr. Patrick Gordon Walker to South East Asia to seek a basis for negotiations for peace in Vietnam? Has the Minister seen reports of a statement made by Mr. Walker in London last week that an eventual peace settlement might not prove too difficult once the initial contact has been made between the interested parties? In view of the importance of Mr. Walker's mission, will the Government express its approval and support for this positive and constructive move by the British Government?
