Senator BOSWELL(11.25) —The Minister has half answered my question in relation to Bamaga, New Mapoon and Seisia. Aurukun is mentioned in the Bill, but Weipa is not listed in either the zones or the regions. Pormpuraaw, which was formerly Edward River, is not listed in the Bill either in the zones or in the regions, nor are Lockhart River, Hopevale, or Wujal Wujal. New Mapoon has now been mentioned. We seem to have lost about five communities and 10,000 Aborigines under this legislation.
