Senator SCOTT (NEW SOUTH WALES) - My question is directed to the Minister representing the Prime Minister. It refers to the distribution of the $2m allocated to advance the United Nations proposal to make 1975 'International Women's Year'. I refer to a submission by the Co-ordinating Women's Group, a large politically unaligned group of women concerned to organise forums throughout Australia where women can meet and exchange views on basic social and economic matters. I ask that the Minister seek to hasten an allocation of the money sought by this significant and growing group of women in a worthy national cause. Indeed, he may even add the weight of his promotion to their objectives so that they may, the sooner, make their contributions to the aforementioned coming International Women's Year and beyond.

Senator MURPHY -I will certainly pass that along to the Prime Minister for his consideration.
