Mr WHITTORN (BALACLAVA, VICTORIA) - My question is addressed to the Minister for External Affairs. Can he say whether Australia's overseas aid is mean, amateurish and fragmented? Is it recognised, especially at the United Nations, that Australia makes a very high per capita contribution of aid, all without strings, to needy countries and to indigent people? When addressing a meeting of members of Apex Clubs in Victoria, was the Leader of the Opposition just looking tor headlines or does he distort the facts?
