Mr ANTHONY - In view of the Prime Minister's previous answer to me in which he indicated that he could emulate the style of Sir Robert Menzies when he visits Washington let me assure him that he is deluding himself if he thinks he has the same standing and the same friendliness and warmth as Sir Robert Menzies. I ask the Prime Minister: Is he, content to go to Washington and hope that arrangements might then be made to see the President of the United States?

Mr WHITLAM - In this matter I will be following the process that Mr Menzies - Sir Robert Menzies - used to follow. I believe that the relations between the American and Australian peoples, allies as they are, were more effective in the way he conducted affairs than they were with some of the frenetic panoply that later Prime Ministers sought.
