Mr BEAZLEY (FREMANTLE, WESTERN AUSTRALIA) - I desire to ask the Prime Minister a question in his capacity of Acting Minister for External Affairs. Have any of the belligerents in South Vietnam, by which I mean the administration of Ho Chi Minh, the leadership of the Vietcong, the Government of South Vietnam and the Governments of the United States, Korea, Australia and New Zealand, stated that they regard themselves as bound by the terms of the Geneva Convention in their treatment of prisoners and civilians, in their use of weapons of war and in their methods of warfare? If any such statements have been made I ask the right honorable gentleman whether the Australian Government considers itself bound by the terms of the Convention.
