Mr SIMMONS —I give notice that, on the next day of sitting, I shall move:

That this House-

(1) expresses its grave concern over reports of continuing death sentences being imposed on the Baha'is by the Government of Iran;

(2) notes such persecutions breach all international conventions on human rights, and

(3) requests the Australian Government to continue its efforts in international forums to dissuade the Iranian Government from such religious persecutions.
