Senator JESSOP —I give notice that, on the next day of sitting, I shall move:

That the Senate-

(a) expresses its grave concern over the serious consequences of the ruling New Zealand Labour Party's decision to withdraw from all military exercises and alliances with nuclear powers, thereby putting an end to the ANZUS alliance, and

in view of the fact that the Soviet presence of nuclear powered submarines and other naval vessels is continually increasing in the southern Pacific region;

(b) calls upon the Australian Government to denounce this harmful action on the part of the ruling New Zealand Labour Party which threatens the security of Australia and the Pacific area.
