Senator HANNAN (VICTORIA) - I direct a question to the Minister representing the Minister for Foreign Affairs. My question is supplementary to that asked by Senator Murphy. Is it not a fact that the Secretary-General of the United Nations, Dr Kurt Waldheim, attempted to call an emergency meeting of the Security Council yesterday on the Vietnam situation? Is it not a fact that the Soviet Ambassador to the United Nations declined to attend such a meeting on the ground that such a meeting was unnecessary?

Senator WRIGHT - I have no information on the matter refered to by the honourable senator, other than newspaper reports, but I will refer the question to the department for authentication at the earliest opportunity.
