Mr DUTHIE (WILMOT, TASMANIA) - I desire to ask the Minister for Supply whether the United Kingdom is playing a lone wolf part in the Pacific nuclear tests at Christmas Island. If it is not, why were the New Zealand and Australian Governments not notified that the hydrogen bomb would be dropped over Christmas Island on a certain day last week? Has the United Kingdom Government already made arrangements with the Australian Government to step up its nuclear tests in Australia before the end of this year?
