Mr DALY (GRAYNDLER, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I ask the Minister for External Affairs: Is it a fact that Dr. Subandrio has invited the Prime Minister to visit Indonesia, and that the Prime Minister has accepted the invitation? Was this invitation a personal one from Dr. Subandrio, or was it extended on behalf of Dr. Soekarno? In other words, has the Minister been assured that the invitation has the backing of, and was given on behalf of, Dr. Soekarno and the Indonesian Government, and that when the Prime Minister visits Indonesia the reception accorded him will be in keeping with his position as Prime Minister of the Commonwealth of Australia and more cordial than that which he received on the historic and memorable occasion of his visit to President Nasser of Egypt?
