THE SMALL NATIONS
IMPORTANCE STRESSED IN MAINTENANCE OF PEACE Parliamentary Reporter. WELLINGTON, this day. Any idea that Britain and America together could dominate the peace of the world was untrue and false, and would inevitably lead to a conflict that would destroy the peace,of the world, said the Minister of Finance, Mr. Nash, in speaking on the World Charter in the House of Representatives yesterday. Other nations had to come in on the same level, added Mr. Nash. Admittedly there was no peace possible without the co-operation of Britain and the United States, but to imagine they could maintain and determine peace would ultimately burst the world up. The Prime Minister, Mr. Fraser, and the representatives of Australia, having asserted that no one of the five nations had the right to veto the desires of forty-nine others, got so much support from the other nations which liked the view expounded, that it was recognised that I the small powers were important and | had some responsibility for the future of the world.
