Senator HILL —My question is directed to the Attorney-General. I refer the Attorney to the answer he gave Senator Durack on 30 March, when he said he would consider making public, as an exposure draft, the proposed legislation for a national Bill of Rights. Despite the Government's obvious desire to keep this and other contentious issues off the political agenda until the premature early election, has the Attorney yet decided whether he will let the Australian people see, before the election, what the Government has in mind for them?

Senator GARETH EVANS —The honourable senator will just have to curb his racing hormones. No decision has been made in this respect. The Government is not in a position to make any announcement as to the content of this Bill.
