  • Description

    THE AUSTRALIAN PRIME MINISTER, MR HAROLD HOLT, TONIGHT (TUESDAY) WAS A GUEST OF MR WILSON'S AT No. 10 DOWNING STREET, AFTER THEY'D MET EARLIER IN THE DAY FOR TALKS ON BRITAIN'S PROPOSALS TO CUT ITS DEFENCE COMMITMENTS EAST OF SUEZ.

    THE TALKS ARE WIDELY REGARDED AS OF CRITICAL IMPORTANCE FOR AUSTRALIA, FACED WITH A RISING DEFENCE BILL AND ANXIOUS THAT THE PLANNED BRITISH WITHDRAWAL SHOULD NOT LEAVE A FAR EAST POWER VACUUM.

    BEFORE MEETING MR WILSON, THE AUSTRALIAN PRIME MINISTER MET MR JOHN MARSHALL, THE NEW ZEALAND DEPUTY PRIME MINISTER, WHO REVIEWED THE DEFENCE ISSUE WITH THE BRITISH LEADER LAST NIGHT.

    MR HOLT AND MR MARSHALL ARE ALSO SOUNDING OUT BRITISH MOVES TO MEMBERSHIP OF THE EUROPEAN COMMON MARKET.
