Mr HASLUCK (CURTIN, WESTERN AUSTRALIA) (Minister for External Affairs) - As Australia is a member of the United Nations the Government, is, of course, aware that 1968 has been designated International Human Rights Year by the United Nations and the Government will be doing its part to ensure the fitting observance of Human Rights Year in Australia. A National Committee has been formed, as the honourable member has indicated, and it has been in consultation with my Department. The Department has also conferred with other government departments in order to ensure not only that a fitting response is made to the National Committee but also that the Government itself will observe the Year in a suitable way.
