Dr Everingham (CAPRICORNIA, QUEENSLAND) asked the Minister for the Environment, Aborigines and the Arts, upon notice:

What action has been taken by the Government to implement the resolution of the International Parliamentary Conference on the Environment that governments should begin international negotiations on pollution control, research and environmental aspects of treaties and foreign aid.


Mr Howson - The answer to the hon ourable member's question is as follows:

The report of the International Parliamentary Conference on the Environment held in Bonn in June 1971 has been brought to the attention of the Government and also to the Preparatory Committee for the United Nations Conference on Human Environment. Many of the issues raised in the report will be discussed at the Stockholm Conference or are being discussed in the Intergovernmental Working Groups on Soils, Marine Pollution. Conservation and Monitoring. Australia is represented on these Working Groups. Regard will be paid to the report of the International Parliamentary Conference in the preparation of Australia's brief for the Stockholm meeting.
