Mr SPEAKER - I draw the attention of the Minister to the fact that he is answering just the fourth question asked in 20 minutes. I am not singling out the Minister in particular, but at that rate the number of opportunities to ask questions that will be available to back bench members of the House will be very small. Is the Minister asking for leave to incorporate a table in Hansard?

Mr VINER - No, Mr Speaker. I was just going to give 2 figures, if I might, and then conclude. On the basis of last year's performance, approximately 53 000 cases were handled by Aboriginal legal aid services throughout Australia at an average cost of $70 a case.
