Mr WHITLAM (WERRIWA, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I ask the Minister for External Affairs a question. Has the right honorable gentleman noted that, following the recent visit to Rhodesia by its national director, Mr. Eric Butler, the Australian League of Rights has tried to organise a Petrol for Rhodesia Fund on the model of the fund in South Africa? Does he know what collections have so far been made and if not will he attempt to find out? Is the Government concerned that such a fund would transgress Australian policy on sanctions on Rhodesia or that its existence may lead to a false and damaging impression abroad that Australians do not support Government policy on this matter?
