Senator WILLESEE - -I ask the Minister representing the Minister for National Development: Is Australia currently negotiating with France to arrange a treaty far co-operation in the area of the peaceful use of atomic energy? If so, is it the Government's intention that the treaty should be in similar terms to that signed in February between Japan and Australia?


Senator COTTON (NEW SOUTH WALES) (Minister for Civil Aviation) - It is my understanding that these discussions are taking place. I think in fairness to the responsible Minister the balance of the question should be directed to him through me. The question asks for information on policy, so I think it properly should go direct to him.
