Senator DURACK (WESTERN AUSTRALIA) -I refer the AttorneyGeneral to advertisements appearing in the daily Press for legal officers to join legal service bureaus which are apparently intended by the Attorney-General to be set up to give advice and assistance to people in need and which are commonly known nowadays as storefront lawyer offices. Is this scheme provided for in the present Budget? What is the criterion of need? What form of assistance is to be given, in addition to advice? How does this policy fit in with the legal aid schemes which are already in existence in the various States and which are being funded by this Government under the present Budget to the extent of $2m?
