Senator DURACK(11.04) —I thank the Minister for his reply. I am sorry that I failed to ask another question which arises really out of the transitional provisions but I think it is relevant to ask it now. The Race Discrimination Commissioner is a new position or it will have a new name. Will the job of the present Commissioner for Community Relations be abolished or will this involve simply a change of name of an existing office? What I am interested to know is whether the Government will have the power to appoint a new Race Discrimination Commissioner. I take it the pesent Sex Discrimination Commissioner will carry on under her appointment.
