Has not the right hon. and learned Gentleman seen the statement made by the acting Foreign Minister of Australia in which he said that there are 10 countries to be included in this proposed pact, including Australia and New Zealand? Will he tell the House whether information given to Australia has been withheld from the Foreign Secretary here?
I will certainly consider anything the hon. and learned Gentleman sends me, but I repeat that there has been no such proposal about 10 countries joining in such an arrangement.
Does not the right hon. and learned Gentleman think, in view of his answer to the previous Question, that he should say that this country will not be a party to any arrangement to which India, Burma, Ceylon and other Commonwealth countries concerned are not parties?
