Senator LAUCKE (SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - I present the following petition from 24 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:

The undersigned citizens of Australia of Baltic origin wish to express their concern at the announced intention of the

Australian Government to recognize the annexation of the three Baltic States of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania by the Soviet Union. We submit that these once free and independent States were occupied by force of arms and beg the Senate to disallow such recognition as a matter of principle.

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

Petition received.

Senator LAUCKE - As a petition similarly worded has already been presented by Senator Young, I do not propose to move that the petition be read.
