Senator MELZER (VICTORIA) - My question is addressed to the Leader of the Government in the Senate. Has the Australian Government ratified the Geneva protocol of 1925 which prohibits chemical warfare? Did it do so on the understanding that riot control agents and anti-plant agents were not covered by the terms of the protocol?

Senator CARRICK - I am not precisely sure of the nature of the answer to that question. I will seek the answer from my colleague in another place.
