Dr EVATT (HUNTER, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I desire to ask the acting Minister for External Affairs a question that follows upon another question asked last week in relation to Laos, in reply to which the Minister said that he would give the House further information on the matter. Is it a fact that negotiations affecting Laos are at present in progress, and are to some extent being conducted by the Secretary-General of the United Nations, Mr. Hammarskjoeld? Can the Minister inform the House whether there is a prospect of peace in that area arising from any arrangements between Laos and her neighbours? In addition, what action is being taken, or has been taken, by the Australian representative who, I understand, is in Laos in connexion with that matter?
