Mr Wallis (GREY, SOUTH AUSTRALIA) asked the Minister-in-Charge of Aboriginal Affairs, upon notice:

(1)   What progress has been made on the proposed erection of an Aboriginal Health Hostel at Port Augusta, South Australia.

(2)   When is it anticipated that the building will be completed.

Mr Wentworth - The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

(1)   No progress has been made on the erection of a health hostel al Port Augusta. At the request of the South Australian authorities money made available for this work has been diverted to the more pressing need of financing a water boring programme in the North West Aboriginal Reserve in South Australia.

(2)   lt is expected that the building of the health hostel will commence in September 1970, with a completion date in late 1971.
