Mr Cohen (ROBERTSON, NEW SOUTH WALES) asked the Prime Minister, upon notice:

(1)   Has his attention been drawn to the present controversy raging in England over the cancellation of the proposed tour of the South African cricket team.

(2)   Has his attention also been drawn to proposed visits to Australia by the South African rugby union team in 1971 and the South African cricket team in 1971-72.

(3)   In view of the possibility that controversy, similar to that in England, could break out in Australia with the consequent threat of unpleasant incidents at sporting fixtures which might necessitate Government involvement, will he use his influence to arrange meetings between those with differing views on Australia's sporting relations with South Africa with the object of averting such incidents.

Mr Gorton - The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

I refer the honourable member to a reply I gave on 2nd June 1970 to a question without notice (Hansard Page 2711).
