Mr NIXON - The situation is that I have received a request from the Aboriginals at Roper River for land on which to commence a cattle station. I have been in touch with my colleague the Minister for Primary Industry and have secured the services of the Bureau of Agricultural Economics, which will make a study of the feasibility of this proposal. When that study is completed I will get in touch with my colleague the Minister for Social Services ind Minister in Charge of

Aboriginal Affairs about whether a capital grant is possible, and the matter will proceed for normal consideration.
