Senator CARRICK (NEW SOUTH WALES) -I present the following petition from 1 1 1 citizens of the Commonwealth:

To the Honourable the President and Members of the Senate in Parliament assembled: The humble petition of the undersigned citizens of the Commonwealth respectfully showeth:

That the Australian Government's diplomatic action to recognise officially the incorporation of the Baltic States into the Soviet Union has been taken contrary to the Prime Minister's assurances to Australian citizens of Baltic origin given as recently as 1 7 May 1974.

We the undersigned therefore humbly petition the Senate to ensure that the above action is rescinded.

And your petitioners, as in duty bound, will ever pray.

Petition received.

Senator CARRICK - As petitions similarly worded have already been presented by Senator Baume and other honourable senators I do not propose that the petition be read.
