Mr HAYDEN (OXLEY, QUEENSLAND) - I direct a question to the Prime Minister. Has his attention been drawn to a United Nations report prepared by Manouchehr Ganji, Special Rapporteur of the Commission of Human Rights, to the effect that 4,150,000 Africans of Southern Rhodesia are subjected to conditions of slavery within the definition of the term in the 1926 Convention on the Abolition of Slavery and Slave Trade? In view of this finding will the Prime Minister restate the emphatic opposition of Australia to the Ian Smith administration in Southern Rhodesia and that administration's policy of democracy in leg irons applied against the Africans by the unconstitutional Government of Southern Rhodesia?
