Mr SPEAKER -Order! If the honourable member continues to use the word true' the question will be out of order. I suggest that he cease using that word.

Mr KENNEDY - Is it a fact that the objective of the Government's traditional forward defence policy has been the containment of Communism and the containment of the influence of Communist powers in our region? In view of the fact that the new Malaysian Prime Minister has announced a policy of non-alignment for Malaysia, has called for the neutralisation of South East Asia and has called upon 2 Communist powers to use their influence in guaranteeing this neutrality, how does the Minister reconcile the new situation with previous justifications of Australia's forward defence policy.
