I assume that the right hon. Gentleman refers to a speech which Mr. Menzies made to the Federal Council of the Australian Liberal Party on 21st October of which a copy has been supplied to the United Kingdom Government by the Australian Government. As my right hon. Friend, the Minister of State for Foreign Affairs, said on 8th November, Her Majesty's Government agree whole-heartedly with what Mr. Menzies said regarding the objectives we must strive to achieve if the problems of this troubled area are to be solved. Her Majesty's Government recognise Mr. Menzies' statement as being both timely and constructive, but for the present there is nothing I can usefully add to the Minister of State's remarks.
Is not it a fact that the Government said nothing to give Mr. Menzies support until I raised the matter in the debate on 8th November? Have the Government, in the light of what has happened since then, no plans for giving support to Mr. Menzies' very statemanslike proposals in the Assembly of the United Nations?
