Mr LIONEL BOWEN (KINGSFORD-SMITH, NEW SOUTH WALES) -I direct a question to the Minister for Aboriginal Affairs. I refer to the guidelines in respect of Aboriginal legal aid which clearly had an emphasis that before any Aboriginal applicant could be entitled to aid he should first explore State legal aid agencies. Were these guidelines issued after consultation with the States? If so, have the States agreed to pick up the cost of providing legal aid for Aborigines?
