The PRESIDENT —Order! Before I call the next questioner, I draw the attention of honourable senators to the presence in the gallery of a delegation from the Supreme Soviet of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. This is the third delegation from the Supreme Soviet to visit Australia, the first being in 1974 and the second in 1979. The delegation is led by a Deputy Chairman of the Supreme Soviet and Chairman of the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet of the Armenian Soviet Socialist Republic, Mr Sarkisov. The delegation arrived in Australia this morning and is to visit Sydney, Melbourne and Perth as well as Canberra. On behalf of all honourable senators, I extend to all members of the delegation a warm welcome to Australia, particularly to Canberra and to the Senate.

Honourable senators-Hear, hear!
