Senator BAUME - I present the following petition from 194 citizens of the Commonwealth:

To the Honourable the President and Members of the Senate in Parliament assembled: The humble petition of the undersigned citizens of the Commonwealth respectfully showeth:

That the Australian Government's diplomatic action to recognize officially the incorporation of the Baltic States into the Soviet Union has been taken contrary to the Prime Minister's assurances to Australian citizens of Baltic origin given as recently as the 17th May 1974.

We, the undersigned, therefore humbly petition the Senate to ensure that the above action is rescinded.

And your petitioners, as in duty bound, will ever pray.

Petition received and read.
