Mr HAROLD HOLT - The honorable gentleman asks a propaganda question, but I do not intend to give a propaganda reply. I am puzzled as to why the honorable gentleman should take ยป this deliberate course of trying to confuse the public mind on the issues that we are facing. The honorable gentleman's general attitude on these matters is well known. He does not support the policy which his Party is advocating in this place. If he were to stand and be counted in respect of what he really believes on the issue in Vietnam he would be standing in support of this Government. I know the views that the honorable gentleman expressed in this place at an earlier time and that others of like mind were expelled from the Australian .Labour Party. I know of the difficult time that he has had in maintaining his position since then among the currents that are swirling around inside the Labour Party. I hope that the honorable member will face up to the issues quite honestly and declare his own mind in frank and open fashion.
