Senator Sir JOHN CARRICK(3.33) —I have not time to consider the report in itself. It is true, as Senator MacGibbon said, that in the past year the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation has come under considerable criticism throughout the world. I have not decided in my own mind on the full pros and cons of the situation. UNESCO is a fine concept, a philosophy with which we would all agree. Because I have not had the time to fully consider the report, and because this subject covers a wide range of matters that are now a matter of public controversy, unless any other honourable senator wishes to contribute to this debate, I seek leave to continue my remarks later.

Leave granted; debate adjourned.
