Mr BRYANT (WILLS, VICTORIA) - I address my question to the Minister for Territories, who, in an answer to a question asked yesterday, fortified the belief that the problem of strong drink is one of the principal reasons for holding back the development of full citizenship for the aborigines in the Northern Territory. As this is a national rather than an administrative or purely Territory question, will the Minister consider the appointment of a committee of this Parliament to examine the whole problem of drink and its relationship to citizenship for aborigines in the Northern Territory and in Australia generally?
