Senator WILLESEE - I direct a question to the Attorney-General. Has there been drafted a reply to the protest note from the Yugoslav Government concerning antiYugoslav terrorist activities in Australia? Has this reply now been sent? If so, what were its terms? If not, what are the reasons for delaying its dispatch?


Senator GREENWOOD - I am surprised that a question which is wholly within the responsibility of the Minister for Foreign Affairs should be directed to me. In the period when Parliament was not sitting there was a Press report, completely without foundation, that I was supposed to have delayed the sending of a protest note. At the time that Press report appeared I had not even seen the protest note. I imagine that that is the reason why the question which is wholly within the responsibility of the Minister for Foreign Affairs has been directed to me, I suggest that if the honourable senator requires information he should direct his question to the Minister representing the Minister for Foreign Affairs.
