Question No. 180


Mr Blanchard asked the Minister for Defence, upon notice, on 19 May 1983:

(1) Can he say which local government municipalities have declared themselves to be nuclear free zones.

(2) Do any of these municipalities include major port centres.


Mr Scholes —The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

(1) and (2) The Department of Defence does not maintain records of local government municipalities that have declared themselves to be nuclear free zones or the terms of those declarations. I am aware, however, that a number of municipalities have made such declarations and that some of these include port areas.
