Mr LINDSAY (FLINDERS, VICTORIA) - I ask the Minister for Territories whether all the information relevant to the hardships suffered by Australian aborigines has now been collected and studied. What degree of hardship is being suffered by these original inhabitants of Australia? Is there any legislation that the Federal Parliament could initiate to ease their conditions? Are they qualified to receive social services benefits and, if so, are there any chances of their being able to use them?
