Senator RAE - My question is directed to the Minister representing the Minister for Aboriginal Affairs, in the absence of Senator Cavanagh. I ask: Is the Minister aware that some Aboriginal members of the Department of Aboriginal Affairs were not at work today? Is the Minister aware of rumours around Parliament House- if so, can he verify them- that there has been a lockout of those Aboriginal employees from that Department?

Senator MURPHY -The answer to those 2 questions is: No, I am not aware of the circumstances. By that I do not mean to convey that whatever the honourable senator is putting is not right. I regret that, representing the Minister for Aboriginal Affairs, I just do not know.

Senator Rae - Could you make some inquiry? It is a matter of some importance.

Senator MURPHY -I will make some inquiry, but the present position is that I do not know.
