Senator ROBERT RAY —I direct my question to the Minister representing the Minister for Foreign Affairs. Has the Minister's attention been drawn to statements by the Minister for Information in the Malaysian Government wherein he stated that the Malaysian Government was against the screening, portrayal or musical presentation of works of Jewish origin? Will the Minister take action to indicate to the Malaysian Government our abhorrence of the anti-semitic statements by that Government?


Senator GARETH EVANS —My attention had not been drawn to that matter, but I will certainly draw it in turn to the attention of the Minister for Foreign Affairs and see what reaction he thinks is appropriate in all the circumstances.


The PRESIDENT —Order! I draw the attention of honourable senators to standing order 402.
