Senator BOSWELL(11.22) —Mr Chairman, I have a problem. I have just received the map denoting the zones and the regional councils. I ask the Minister: What zone is Bamaga in? Why is Mapoon, which is an Aboriginal settlement in the MPA area, listed with the Torres Strait Islands? Bamaga is a Torres Strait community on the northern tip of Queensland. Torres Strait and Mapoon should be with the Aboriginal communities. Also, I cannot find in the Bill Weipa, Kowanyama, Pormpuraaw-which was Edward River-Lockhart, Hopevale, Wujal Wujal, Cooktown, Laura, Coen, New Mapoon, Injinoo and Umagico. What regional council are they in? They are not mentioned in the zone and they are not mentioned in the regional councils in the Bill.
