Senator SIM (WESTERN AUSTRALIA) - I address my question to the Minister representing the Acting Minister for Foreign Affairs. Is he aware that the Deputy Prime Minister, Dr Cairns, has again been reported to have stated that he regarded Australia as an honorary member of the Third World and that it is up to the Third World whether Australia is accepted as a member? Is this Government policy? If so, why has the Parliament not been advised by the Minister for Foreign Affairs?

Senator MURPHY -Mr President,the question will be referred to the Acting Minister for Foreign Affairs for a written reply.
