Senator LILLICO (TASMANIA) - I ask the Minister for Foreign Affairs the following question: In view of the genocide practised in Tibet by the Chinese, which was exposed in its report on the matter by the International Commission of Jurists which is based in Geneva, does the Government really believe that Taiwan should be a province of" China, it having been referred to as such some time ago by the Prime Minister, because of the risk of a similar fate befalling the people of that country? Just what is the Government's policy in regard to Taiwan?

Senator WILLESEE -Our policy in regard to Taiwan has been stated several times. What will be the situation of Taiwan vis-a-vis the People 's Republic of China in the future, I could not tell.
