Senator DAVIDSON (SOUTH AUSTRALIA) -Has the Minister for Foreign Affairs received a telegram from the

Baltic Council in South Australia protesting against a reported insulting remark made by the Prime Minister to a woman at an election meeting in Queensland? Is he aware of the incident, and can he advise whether or not the report is correct? If so, and in view of the deep distress felt by the Baltic community at the Government's recognition of Soviet sovereignty over the Baltic States, will the Minister take steps to make amends to these worthy Australian people?

Senator WILLESEE -I am not aware whether a telegram has come to me. It could well be that it is in my office and I have not seen it yet. As regards the question of making amends about what it is alleged the Prime Minister said, I do not know. As I understand it, the Prime Minister has denied making the statement, but I will check on that.
