Mr JONES (NEWCASTLE, VICTORIA) - I direct a question to the Prime Minister. Is he aware that at this very moment a ship named the " Eastern Saga " is lying in Newcastle Harbour with a deck cargo of 750 sheep on their way from Burnie in Tasmania to Communist China? Will the wool from the offspring of these sheep be used in the manufacture of uniforms for China's armed forces, which could be used to attack Australia? Is the sale of these valuable breeding sheep to Communist China consistent with the Government's basic assumption in foreign policy that China is out to dominate the world and that it threatens Australia?
