MEDIA RELEASE. 9 MAY, 1985.

"PEACE AND SECURITY"

Mr Peter Shack, the Federal Member for Tangney, believes that the Liberal Party's side of the peace and deterrence debate is clearly expressed in a new pamphlet entitled,"Peace, Security and Freedom.1 '

The release of the leaflets coincided with recent seminars on Peace and Security which were organised by the Women's Sections of the Liberal Party.

Mr Shack said, "Our search for a peace which guarantees freedom and security is one of the biggest issues facing us today."

VThe issue is not whether or not peace is desirable," he said. "Instead, it is a question of how we can best achieve peace and then preserve it."

Mr Shack said that the fact that there has been no major world

war in the last 40 years suggested to him, and to others, that

deterrence, centred on strong defence, has played a key role in securing and maintaining peace.

"Our task is to see that we can continue to live in peace and

freedom without nuclear weapons being used to destroy or blackmail," he said.

"Australia has a distinguished record in working for peace and security," Mr Shack said. "And our involvement in the Western Alliance gives us standing in the disarmament debate."

Mr Shack said that nuclear.weapons are problems requiring practical solutions.

"If the people of Tangney are interested in finding out more about these practical solutions, they can call at my office in Suite 8 of the Gateway Building in Booragoon and collect a copy of the leaflet, or telephone and we will post one to them," Mr Shack added. ยท <
