Senator GUILFOYLE (VICTORIA) - I direct my question to the Minister representing the Minister for Social Security. Has the Minister any information to offer with regard to the complete review of funding voluntary organisations which the Government stated some 18 months ago was being undertaken? Has the review been completed? If so, what assistance is available to national associations for the maintenance and expansion of work with mentally retarded people? Alternatively, does the announcement with regard to the curtailed activities of the Australian Social Welfare Commission indicate that any action on the complete review has been abandoned?

Senator WHEELDON (WESTERN AUSTRALIA) (Minister for Repatriation and Compensation) - I think that is a question about which I would need to consult my colleague, the Minister for Social Security. I ask Senator Guilfoyle to put the question on notice and I shall undertake to get an answer as quickly as possible.
