Mr BRYANT (Wills) .- I should like to ask the Minister a questionrelated to clause 64. Does this clause give aboriginals the same rights as are, generally speaking, applied to other Australian citizens? What are the requirements in relation to their obtaining permits, and so on? Are the provisions more rigorously and stringently applied to aboriginals than to other Australians? On the whole, I think this clause is an advance, but I should like to hear an explanation from the Minister. I have in mind aboriginals in the States, as well as those in the Northern Territory and other territories of the Commonwealth.
