Senator BAUME - I present the following petition from 25 citizens of the Commonwealth:

To the Honourable the President and Members of the Senate in Parliament Assembled. The humble petition of the undersigned citizens of the Commonwealth respectfully showeth:

That the Australian Government's diplomatic action to recognize officially the incorporation of the Baltic States into the Soviet Union has been taken contrary to the Prime Minister's assurances to Australian citizens of Baltic origin given as recently as the 1 7th May 1 974.

We, the undersigned, therefore humbly petition the Senate to ensure that the above action is rescinded.

Petition received.

Senator BAUME - Mr President,as petitions similarly worded have been read in the Senate, I do not propose to move that these petitions be read.

Suggest corrections
