Senator CAVANAGH -I desire to ask a question of either the Minister representing the Minister for the Army or the Minister representing the Minister for Defence. I ask: Will the appropriate Minister make a full and frank statement on Australia's future role in Vietnam and thus dispel the many rumours and the speculation about Australia's future in that area? If so, will such a statement include the reasons for the reposting to Australia of both of the Australian commanders who are at present in Vietnam and explain the position of Australian ground combat forces after

May of this year, which is when it is planned that the United States of America will have withdrawn all of her ground combat forces?
