Mr WHITLAM (Werriwa) - I wish to make a personal explanation in view of misrepresentations contained in a question asked by the honorable member for Chisholm (Sir Wilfrid Kent Hughes) and in a reply given to it by the Prime Minister (Mr. Harold Holt). In the last question which he answered yesterday afternoon, the Prime Minister stated that more than 30 governments are giving assistance in one form or another to the Government of South Vietnam. The countries concerned and the nature of their assistance were stated in an answer furnished by the Minister for External Affairs (Mr. Hasluck) to a question which I had put on the notice paper. The answer appears in " Hansard " of 27th October 1964 at page 2383. In my speech last night I quoted the assistance which Australia had given on the same instigation in the same circumstances.
