Mr JARMAN (DEAKIN, VICTORIA) - I refer the Prime Minister to his recent remarks when he said that he believed in open government and in keeping the Australian people informed of what goes on in government. I ask him: When does he intend to release the formula on which Australia recognised the People's Republic of China? How does it differ from the formula on which Canada recognised the People's Republic of China some time ago?


Mr WHITLAM - The formula on which Australia recognised the People's Republic of China was published about Christmas time. The whole of the accompanying documents were published at that time. There are no significant differences between the formula of recognition of the PRC by Australia and the formula of recognition of the PRC by Canada or, say, Britain.
