Mr L R JOHNSON (HUGHES, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I ask the Minister acting for the Minister for External Affairs whether it is a fact that as late as last Tuesday the Australian delegation to the United Nations General Assembly again voted against procedural resolutions designed to pave the way for China's admission to the United Nations. Does the Minister consider this action to be conducive to the easing of the serious international tension at present prevailing in the East? How does he reconcile this Government's intention to seek new markets in red China, particularly for lead and zinc, with the stern rebuke given so recently in the United Nations General Assembly?
