Senator McLAREN (SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - I direct to the Minister for Aboriginal Affairs a question which follows upon a question asked earlier today about an amount of $400,000 that was paid by the previous Government for prefabricated cottages under the Aboriginal self-help housing scheme, which houses failed to meet specifications. Can the Minister assure the Senate that the present Australian Government will take more care in safeguarding not only the welfare of the Aboriginal community in regard to its housing needs but also the public purse?
