Senator MURPHY (NEW SOUTH WALES) - I address my question to the Leader of the Government in the Senate. Now that the United States of America is engaged in open war with the North Vietnamese, will the Government assure the Senate that there is not, and will not be, participation by Australian servicemen in Vietnam in such a way as to involve Australia in a state of war?

Senator Sir KENNETH ANDERSON - Quite obviously such a question at this point of time would need to go on the notice paper. I do not like requesting that a question asked by the Leader of the Opposition should be placed on the notice paper but it must be obvious that I must take that course on this occasion.
