Mr E G Whitlam (WERRIWA, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I ask the Minister for Aboriginal Affairs a question. I recall that it is 6 months since he announced the formation of a working party to examine the problems of Aboriginal unemployment, including the impact of unemployment benefit payments on Aboriginal communities. I ask: When did the Minister receive the report of the working party? As the problem of Aboriginal unemployment is, in his words, 'especially severe in rural areas', when will the Government be announcing initiatives as a result of the recommendations of the working party?
