. . 25 February ]979

The Prime Minister Malcolm Fraser said today that as a . result of a very full conversation with the Right Honourable Phillip Lynch, the Honourable Eric Robinson and himself today, it has become very plain,that there were no

significant differences which could not be resolved by discussion. That has been done.

As a result, the Prime Minister proposed that the Honourable Eric -Robinson might consider rejoining the Ministry as Minister for Finance.

After further discussion, it was jointly agreed by . all three that that would be by far the best course .

for the well being of the Liberal Party, the Government . . and Australia. . .

Mr Robinson will resume his position forthwith.
