Senator COHEN (VICTORIA) - I address to the Leader of the Government in the Senate a question which is supplementary to that asked by Senator Brown. Since the explosion by mainland China of a nuclear device last week, has the Government made any approach to the Chinese Government urging it to sign the Nuclear Test Ban Treaty? In view of the fact that Australia has no diplomatic relations with China, through what channel of communication did the Government make its views known, if in fact it did so?

Senator PALTRIDGE - I prefer to confer with my colleague, the Acting Minister for External Affairs, before providing an answer.
