Mr HASLUCK - The United States Government and the Australian Government are in close and constant consultation with each other on all aspects of the war in Vietnam. As for Australia's attitude towards a settlement in Vietnam, this has been stated by me in the House on several occasions and was stated more recently, most emphatically and clearly, by the Prime Minister whan announcing to the House the decision to make an additional contribution of troops. On that occasion, after the Prime Minister had concluded his statement, the honourable member for Yarra might have had an opportunity to tell us what he thought of the matter, but for some reason his leader decided to buck the debate and say nothing.

We stand by the statements we have made to this House on several occasions of our earnest and constant desire to bring about peace in Vietnam.

Mr Bryant - I rise to order. The Minister was asked whether he knew certain things. He is not answering the question.
