Senator RAE (TASMANIA) - My question is directed to the Foreign Minister. In answering a question on Tuesday related to the recognition of the Baltic States the Minister said:

Australia did, however, consult a number of friendly countries beforehand to inform them of its intention to review its position on this matter, and neither then nor since has any criticism been raised by those countries of the course we proposed to follow.'

I ask the Minister: What were the countries consulted?

Senator WILLESEE -I will supply the honourable senator with a list of the countries concerned. This country would automatically inform most of the western European group of countries and others. But I shall get the information for the honourable senator.
