50. Mr. Hamilton Kerr

asked the Prime Minister whether a proposal to set up a permanent Pacific Defence Board will be included in the agenda of the forth coming Defence Conference in New Zealand?

The Prime Minister

The object of the Conference, as already announced, is to consider matters of common concern in the Pacific with particular reference to Defence questions. I am not in a position to give details of any particular matters which may be discussed.
