Sir EARLE PAGE (Cowper) .- Before this motion is put I think that it would be reasonable for the Prime Minister (Mr. Chifley) to tell the House exactly which of the 31 Orders of the Day now listed on the notice-paper will be disposed of. It would also be appreciated if the right honorable gentleman would tell us how many of the 34 questions on the notice-paper, some of which have appeared on it for many months, will be answered before the end of the session. The Government should also make a statement of policy in regard to events that are taking place in south-east Asia and to the need for assistance in the defence of Hong Kong. I understand that the United States of America and the United Kingdom have taken concerted measures, and I should like to know what the government view is and whether it has taken any action.
