Senator WOOD - I ask the Minister representing the Minister for Foreign Affairs another question, following my previous one about Uganda. Does he remember, on the occasion of the visit of the South African football team to Australia last year, the very noisy demonstrations and protests made by so many socalled racists against that team coming to Australia? Has the Government received any protests from any of the individuals or organisations, which made such a grand display on that occasion, against the atrocities that Uganda is now committing in its extreme racist policy towards Indians and Pakistanis?

Senator WRIGHT - No such protests have come to my knowledge.

Senator Willesee - Apart from Senator Wood's.

Senator WRIGHT - I regard Senator Wood's question as a very thoughtful one which throws into relief the difference between political ideologies for party political purposes and genuine beliefs for the purpose of opposing racism.
