Senator WALTERS —by leave-I have a point of personal explanation. Senator Chipp quoted Senator Sir John Carrick. I just want to quote what I actually did say and give the reference. Referring to Senator Chipp, I said:

He did not say that the USSR had testfired 24 missiles into the Pacific Ocean between 1978 and 1984. He did not kick up a fuss about the USSR firing 24 missiles during that period. He did not say a word about the SS18 missiles with a range of over 16,000 kilometres being fired in the vicinity of the Cook Islands.

My reference for that was the office of the Minister for Defence (Mr Beazley).
