Dr EVATT (BARTON, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I desire to ask the acting Minister for External Affairs whether the Government has considered, or is about to consider, the bringing of the situation in Formosa and certain islands off the coast of China and the action of certain powers in relation to that area, before the General Assembly of the United Nations with a view to obtaining an order from that supreme body for a cease fire. If such an order were issued, as I believe it would be, it would immediately tend to end, for the time being at least, the anxiety over the situation. I appeal to the honorable gentleman to make a decision on the matter, and to make the right decision.
