Mr JARMAN (DEAKIN, VICTORIA) - Is the Prime Minister aware of a report tabled this week at the National Congress of the Returned Servicemen's League by Air Vice-Marshal F. M. Bladin, the Chairman of the Defence Subcommittee of that body which stated that internal protest movements in Australia and America have prolonged the Vietnam war causing unnecessary death and suffering and that these protest movements have in fact weakened the free world defence structure in South East Asia? Will the Prime Minister state to the House, as requested at the Congress, that the Government will tolerate dissent only while it stays within the law and does not infringe the rights of the majority of the population?
