Historical Notes: The committee organising the "Peace Power and Politics in Asia" conference planned to bring in speakers from outside New Zealand. This was blocked by the Reserve Bank refusing to allow New Zealand overseas funds to be used to pay for fares to bring speakers to the conference. The deputation saw Muldoon hoping to persuade the Goverment to reverse the descision of the Reserve Bank.
