Senator REYNOLDS —Can the Minister representing the Minister for Home Affairs and Environment report on the progress of Australia's bid to host the 1988 South Pacific Arts Festival? As a number of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community leaders have already indicated their strong support for undertaking primary responsibility for this prestigious festival, can the Minister outline the membership of the Australian delegation attending the 1984 South Pacific Arts Festival in Noumea between 8 and 22 December, when this decision will be taken?

Senator RYAN —I will have to refer that matter to the Minister for Home Affairs and Environment. I am sorry that I do not have a brief on it. I believe that steps have been taken along the lines that Senator Reynolds's question suggests, but I will have to get details of it for her.
