Senator CAVANAGH (SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - I ask the

Minister representing the Acting Minister for External Affairs whether there is any truth in the report that Australia is to send 800 combat troops to South Vietnam. If it is true, was the decision taken as a result of the visit of Mr. Lodge to Australia or at the request of any Government? Will the Senate be given an opportunity to discuss the advisability of this action before any troops are despatched to South Vietnam?
