Mr CHANEY (PERTH, WESTERN AUSTRALIA) - My question is directed to the AttorneyGeneral and Acting Minister for External Affairs. Can he state at what height a missile, aircraft or object ceases to violate territory over which it flies? If no height is laid down by international law, would a country have as much right to threaten missile attack on Russian bases from which satellites have been launched, since these have repeatedly flown over the territory of other nations, as the Russians have to threaten attack on American bases where aircraft flights have commenced?
