Senator SIBRAA (NEW SOUTH WALES) - My question is directed to the Minister representing the Minister for Foreign Affairs. In view of the fact that the Australian Government played a significant part in the constitutional settlement and subsequent election in Zimbabwe, which has now clearly been won by the party of Mr Robert Mugabe, will the Australian Government undertake immediate discussions with the new government to ensure that Australia conducts the most generous possible aid program to assist with post-war reconstruction? Will the Government undertake to encourage other Commonwealth nations to assist in special aid programs to Zimbabwe?

Senator CARRICK - I will refer the question to my colleague the Minister for Foreign Affairs.
