Senator BUTTFIELD - My question is directed to the Acting Minister for External Affairs. Is it a fact that Australia has demonstrated its sincere desire for the establishment and the maintenance of peace by at all times being willing to pay its assessed contributions to the United Nations peacekeeping operations; by sending a contingent to join the United Nations peacekeeping force in Cyprus; by being one of the first nations to ratify the nuclear test ban treaty; and by recognising our respon sibility to help solve the many problems of less developed nations? Does the Minister think it is in any way necessary, or that there is any sincerity on the part of Communist countries which do so, to organise and send delegates to a peace conference in a country which repeatedly demonstrates its desire for peace, which in no way performs acts of aggression against any other country, which is genuinely peace loving and which does not want peace only on its own terms?
