Senator TEAGUE(4.05) —I just seek clarification of the second matter; that is, the definition of the trust. The Minister has said that the members of this trust will be determined by the Minister for Aboriginal Affairs on the advice of the land council. Is that by administrative action; is it by the announcement that she has just made; or is it prescribed by any statutory definition or regulation? If it is an administrative matter that she has just announced, what guarantee is there that the Minister will not change his mind?
