Mr SINCLAIR (NEW ENGLAND, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I ask a question of the Prime Minister, and it is supplementary to those asked by the honourable member for Perth and the honourable member for Kooyong. In view of the very real concern of all Australians at the alleged atrocities by the Syrians against Israeli prisoners of war, will the Prime Minister now initiate action within the United Nations in accordance with the last part of the question put to him by the honourable member for Perth?

Mr WHITLAM - We have been in touch with the International Committee of the Red Cross in Geneva on this matter for many days past. That is the appropriate body in respect to Geneva conventions.
