Dr EVATT (Barton) (Leader of the Opposition) . - I support the remarks of the Prime Minister (Mr. Menzies). I only desire to recall one thing, emphasized to us on this side of the House by our colleague, the honorable member for Wilmot (Mr. Duthie), after he made a special visit to the Philippines notso long ago. During that visit the President, whose death we lament, explained how the great internal struggle in the Philippines with the body of men responsible for the Huk rebellion was ultimately handled. It was handled by generous conciliation in an exemplary way which will make this President's name remembered not only in his own country but also, I believe, throughout the world.

Mr MENZIES - I assume, Mr. Speaker, as I think my right honorable friend also has assumed, that you will, as Speaker, convey to the distinguished Ambassador of the Philippines, for transmission to the President, the remarks that have been made here to-day.
