Senator PRIMMER (Victoria) -I bring up a report from the Senate Standing Committee on Foreign Affairs and Defence. As the report is only 2 paragraphs in length, I trust that honourable senators will bear with me while I read it. It reads:

Under the terms of the resolution re-appointing the Legislative and General Purpose Standing Committees on 1 7 September 1974, the Standing Committees have power to inquire into and report upon matters which were referred to them during previous sessions.

In the light of this discretionary power, the Standing Committee on Foreign Affairs and Defence has considered three references in this category, namely:

Thailand ';

All matters relating to the recognition of China and the status of Taiwan'; and

The role of ANZUK as a result of change in Australia 's defence establishment in South East Asia '; and has resolved not to proceed with them.
