Sir Wilfrid Kent Hughes (CHISHOLM, VICTORIA) - I wish to direct a question to the Prime Minister in his capacity of Minister representing the Acting Minister for External Affairs. Yesterday, the Deputy Leader of the Opposition stated that "Australia had given no non-military assistance to Vietnam until October 1964, six months after America requested that Australia provide aid ". In order to dispel the ignorance, cynicism and carelessness of such statements by Opposition members, will the right honorable gentleman state briefly in broad outline some of the major projects and the annual expenditure involved in non-military assistance given by Australia since 1958?
