Senator RIDLEY (SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - I direct to the Minister representing the Minister for Labour and National Service a question arising from a comment he made in reply to an earlier question by Senator Cant. The Minister stated that the policy of the Government in respect of the differentiation of award rates for Aborigines was in the hands of the Commonweatlh Conciliation and Arbitration Commission. I ask: What is the datum line between the responsibility of the Government and that of the Commission in respect of a policy that is of supreme importance to the image of Australia in the eyes of every thinking person in the world?
