Mr SNEDDEN - There is to be a demonstration - I suppose that is the term for it - in Parliament House next Wednesday and Thursday.

Mr James - In the House, here?

Mr SNEDDEN - This is the chamber, I will have the honourable member know. lt is to be known as the Trade Union Lobby Day, Canberra, Against the Vietnam War. It is expected to commence in Parliament House at 2.30 p.m. next Wednesday. The organisers are proposing to hold in the evening a peace social at a trade union club. The organisers plan, on the Thursday morning, to visit the United States, the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, the Canadian, the Indian and the British missions and, on Thursday afternoon, as on Wednesday afternoon, to lobby in Parliament House against the Vietnam war. This demonstration is associated with other anti- Vietnam War demonstrations, and I shall name a couple of them.

On Tuesday, 14th May, the Students' Peace Ride to Canberra from Sydney will be held. This has been organised by the Secondary Students for International Tolerance and Equality and has the support of the Communist inspired peace front, the Association for International Co-operation and Disarmament in Sydney.

Mr Hayden - You have not changed in 8 years.
