Senator BISHOP (SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - My question, also addressed to the Minister representing the Minister for Foreign Affairs, follows on from the question asked by Senator Rae. Is the Minister saying in his answer to Senator Rae that the great detente accomplished by Willi Brandt, the Chancellor of West Germany, which has been applauded by all governments of the world, by which he has established a working relationship between the East and West and which augurs well for peace in the world, is bad for the world? Is he aware that the photograph referred to in fact shows officials dealing with minor matters relating to this new relationship between East and West Germany?

Senator WRIGHT - I am saying nothing whatever to disparage the efforts of Willi Brandt in making arrangements for securing peace with his European neighbours. 1 am saying that the use of such an absurd photograph for the purpose of illustrating teamwork in the Labor Party is about as nonsensical as you can get.
