    TRANSCRIPT: SEQUENCE 12.: MENZIES: "DON'T ASK ME WHAT WE ARE GOING TO DO IN THE FUTURE. AS YOU KNOW, WE HAVE, IN FACT, NOT ONLY SUPPORTED THEM - FIRST OF ALL WITH SOME AIR FORCE ITEMS, AND THEM WITH SOME TECHNICAL ADVISERS AND SO ON - BUT NOW WITH A BATTALION OF THE REGULAR ARMY. SO OUR ATTITUDE IS QUITE CLEAR...IT'S NEVER HAD THE SLIGHTEST AMBIGUITY, BUT WHERE DOES THE AMBIGUITY SUFFER? YOU FIRST STORY WAS AMBIGUOUS. IS THAT IT? YES..."



    QUESTION:"BUT SOME AFRICAN COUNTRIES ON RHODESIA ARE TAKING EXTREME ACTION TO FORCE THE SOUTHERN RHODESIAN GOVERNMENT NOT TO DECLARE INDEPENDENCE. WHAT KIND OF ADVICE WILL YOU BE GIVING THE CONFERENCE?"



    MENZIES: "AH, WAIT AND SEE WHAT I HAVE TO SAY...I'VE BEEN THROUGH THIS KIND OF ARGUMENT BEFORE. I WAIT AND HEAR WHAT THEY HAVE TO SAY. I'M TOO OLDER A HAND TO SAY: 'IF SO AND SO SAYS SUCH AND SUCH, I WILL THEN SAY..'" (LAUGHTER).



    QUESTION: "DO YOU AGREE, THOUGH, WITH THE IDEA OF RHODESIA BECOMING A SUBJECT WITHOUT RHODESIA BEING REPRESENTED?"



    MENZIES: "I THINK THAT IF RHODESIA IS TO BE THERE...I SAID THAT LAST TIME. THAT, I FIND, IS NOT A VERY POPULAR VIEW, BUT THEN LOTS OF MY VIEWS ARE NOT."
