1.   Is there an interdepartmental committee examining the function of the Bureau of Mineral Resources?

2.   If so, which departments are represented on the committee, and by whom are they represented?

Mr Fairbairn - The answer to the honorable member's questions is as follows -

There is an examination proceeding of some aspects of the scope and. direction of the Bureau's activity. This is normal procedure. The examination is being conducted on a basis which brings other departments into consultation. The composition of the committee thus formed accords with established administrative practice in such matters.
