Senator MULVIHILL (NEW SOUTH WALES) - I ask the Minister representing the Minister for Foreign Affairs: How long does he think Australia can adhere to its 2-China policy when the chief beneficiary, Taiwan, continues to ignore our territorial waters in regard to fishing?

Senator WRIGHT (TASMANIA) (Minister for Works) - I would think that we should not attribute to those intrusions into our territorial fishing waters any national representation. I would think that private interests have trespassed without national authority. Therefore J would not regard the incident as having any effect upon the international relations of the Austraiian and Taiwanese governments.
