Mr WHEELER (MITCHELL, NEW SOUTH WALES) - Will the Minister for External Affairs say why he has decided that Australia should not continue as a member .of the Commission on the Status of Women? As I understand that Australia has a record of constructive representation on this United Nations instrumentality, I ask the right honorable gentleman whether he has good reason for abandoning this activity. Further, is it too late to suggest that our continued membership of the commission might be reconsidered?
