Mr YATES (Holt) - I think a point has been raised here which the Minister for Aboriginal Affairs (Mr Viner) will well understand when this Bill is debated in the other place. I hope the Minister for Aboriginal Affairs will ask the Minister for Social Security (Senator Guilfoyle), who will be in charge of the Bill, to look at this clause extremely carefully because it questions our rights in relation to what we have responsibility for when compared with State rights. When it comes to wildlife and certain other aspects I believe the Commonwealth should soil hold that power.

Clause agreed to.

Clause 74 (Application of laws of Northern Territory to Aboriginal land)
