Mr DALY (GRAYNDLER, NEW SOUTH WALES) - Has the attention of the Minister for Territories been directed to a statement by the South African Prime Minister, Dr. Verwoerd, to the effect that Australia was practising the same racial policy in Papua and New Guinea as South Africa was practising at home? If so, will the Minister state whether or not this statement is correct? If it is not correct, will the Minister deny the truth of the statement, outline the policy being followed and, at the same time, assure our Asian friends and the nations of the world that Australia in no way supports the inhuman racial policies of the South African Prime Minister and his Government?
