Senator McLAREN (SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - I direct a question to the Minister representing the Prime Minister. It arises out of the recent statement by the Prime Minister that the Government is to conduct an inquiry into poverty in Australia. Will the Minister tell the Senate the name of the man who is to conduct the inquiry, what are the terms of reference, and when will the inquiry begin?


Leader of the Opposition in another place this morning asked the Prime Minister a question along similar lines. The Prime Minister informed the Leader of the Opposition that the terms of reference had now been decided upon and that this would be a one-man inquiry. The Prime Minister further advised the Leader of the Opposition that the man who will conduct the inquiry is at present out of Australia but will return on Sunday and that, when he has returned, his name and the terms of reference will be announced.
