Senator CANT - I direct a question to the Attorney-General. Is it a fact that he visited Rhodesia during 1970-71 and talked with officers of a government described on many occasions by Sir Robert Menzies as illegal? Does the Minister consider that his visit to Rhodesia as guest of the governmentbacked Rhodesian Promotion Council would embarrass him in providing the Australian Government with advice on the status of the Rhodesian Information Centre in Australia?

Senator GREENWOOD - It is a fact that I visited Rhodesia in 1971 and that I learned a lot of facts about that country which one cannot get by relying merely upon the newspapers of this country. I do not believe that my visit or the information that I learned would prevent me in any way doing my job to the best of my ability.
