##### Abstract

We prove that a free ${ℤ}_{3}$ action on a lens space is standard. This extends to lens spaces earlier work of Maher and Rubinstein on ${ℤ}_{3}$ actions on ${S}^{3}$. It follows using previously known results that a free action of a group of order ${2}^{a}{3}^{b}$ on ${S}^{3}$ is standard.
