Senator Mulvihill asked the Minister Representing the Minister for Foreign Affairs, upon notice, on 20 February 1980:

Why was the Australian flag not flying in front of the White House during the Prime Minister's recent visit to the United States of America as a tribute to a visiting Head of State?


Senator Carrick - The Foreign Minister has provided the following answer to the honourable senator's question:

The Australian flag was not flying in front of the White House during the Prime Minister's visits because they were not formal state visits. The Prime Minister's visits were regarded as working level visits, as was his previous trip to Washington in January 1979.
