Mr CASEY (Minister for External Affairs) - I cannot undertake to lay any papers on the subject on the table, but f shall certainly undertake to tell the House and the right honorable gentleman the full particulars of the transaction and defend it to the death, if necessary.

Dr Evatt - It might come to that.

Mr CASEY - I shall most certainly do that. The Government has nothing to apologize for in respect of this matter. I think it is a splendid piece of business. I would be perfectly willing and, indeed, eager to tell the House the full details of this arrangement. As the Minister responsible for the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization, it has my entire approval and I should be very glad to seek the earliest opportunity that the forms of the House allow to tell honorable members about it.
