Mr UREN (REID, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I address my question to the Prime Minister in his capacity as Minister for External Affairs. Last Tuesday, I asked him which government Australia recognized as the legal government of Laos, and he stated in reply that he would deal with that matter in his statement to be made on the evening of that day. However, the right honorable gentleman did not indicate in his statement which government was recognized by Australia, and I now ask: Which government does the Australian Government recognize - that of Prince Souvanna Phouma, which is recognized by the United Kingdom Government, or that of Prince Boun Oum, which is recognized by the Government of the United States of America?
