Senator GRIMES (Minister for Community Services)(11.36) —I will convey Senator Sir John Carrick's words to the Minister for Foreign Affairs (Mr Hayden), but I would point out that we always run into problems of semantics in this area. The South Pacific Nuclear Free Zone Treaty proscribes, as Senator Sir John Carrick knows, the stationing, the storing and the testing of devices and weapons, and also the dumping of waste material, so it goes a bit beyond even a non-proliferation zone. However, I think that this point should be referred to the Minister for consideration and I shall so refer to it.
