1.   I attended- the Finance Ministers Meeting in Montreal in September 1966 and the Fund and Bank Annual Meeting in Washington in the same month; the Finance Ministers Meeting in Port of Spain in September 1967 and the Fund and Bank Annual Meeting in Rio de Janeiro in the same month; and the Asian Development Bank Annual Meeting in Manila in April 1968.

2.   I draw the attention of the Leader of the Opposition to paragraph 3 of my answer to Question No. 137 referred to in Hansard of Wednesday, 3 April 1968. As the Leader of the Opposition knows I have no responsibility for independent journalists or those who are not attached to delegations under my control.
