Mr HAYDEN (OXLEY, QUEENSLAND) - I address a question to the Prime Minister. Will his Government lodge a strong protest with the Algerian Government concerning the manner in which Ben Bella, the former Premier of that country, has been imprisoned for several months without trial, in circumstances where he is denied visitors - even members of his family and relatives - is prevented from obtaining medical attention, is refused legal representation and, in fact, is detained in a manner which is quite inhumane and a total derogation of human rights? Will his Government also protest on this matter through any international agencies which may be appropriate for this purpose?
