That this General Synod, in order to support our partner Churches,

i) urges the Government of Australia to continue to oppose, in the strongest terms, the testing of nuclear devices in the Pacific region by France;

ii) requests the Primate to convey the strong opposition of this General Synod to French nuclear testing in the Pacific to the French Ambassador;

iii) requests the Primate to inform the national councils of other Christian Churches in Australia of these actions and to encourage them to take similar action.

(Rev. J.H. Stephenson, 29.8.85)
