Mr Ward (EAST SYDNEY, NEW SOUTH WALES) d asked the Attorney-General, upon notice -

What nations have been proclaimed in accordance with the terms of the Crimes Act as nations to which the relative provisions of that act are to extend?

Sir Garfield Barwick - The answer to the honorable member's question is as follows: -

At present there are none. The honorable member's question suggests that he must have overlooked the requirement in section 24aa that a resolution of each House of the Parliament must precede the making of any Proclamation under the section. If circumstances should arise in which it becomes necessary to bring the section into operation, the matter will thus automatically be brought to the notice of all honorable members.
