HOUSING PROJECT FOR CAPE BARREN ISLAND

Aboriginals on Cape Barren Island, Tasmania, are to have a planned township, The Minister for Aboriginal Affairs, Senator Cavanagh said today.

The Minister said he had approved a proposal for a housing project to be developed by the Cape Barren Islanders Canmunity Incorporated.

He hoped the work on the project would begin immediately.

Senator Cavanagh said he was concerned about the welfare of the islanders in such an isolated and remote area and hoped the proposed township would bring them into a closer knit canmunity.

He said further projects to improve facilities on Cape Barren Island, and to provide increased employment opportunities for the Islanders, were being considered.
