Mr McMAHON (LOWE, NEW SOUTH WALES) (Minister for External Affairs) - As lo the first part of the honourable gentleman's question. I did inform the House that so far as . overflight facilities were concerned the Australian Government had informed the French Government that it would not permit its territory or space over its territory to be used by aircraft that might be proceeding on these nuclear test activities. As to port facilities, I do not think that - at the moment in any event - any of our ports have been used by ships that are carrying out any activities in connection wilh these tests but I will find out and let the honourable gentleman know. As to the last part of the honourable gentleman's question, I have not seen any report of the Committee but again I will find out and let him know the results of my efforts.
