Mr Whitlam m asked the Minister for Labour and National Service, upon notice -

Which Commonwealth departments and State governments have been asked and have given their views on ratifying the Indigenous and Tribal Populations Convention, 1957?

Mr McMahon - The answers to the honorable member's question are as follows: -

The text of the convention was referred to the Stales, and to the Departments of Territories (in respect of the Northern Territory) and the Interior (in respect of the Australian Capital Territory), for consideration as to ratification and all have indicated their views. These will be covered in the statement in respect of the conventions and recommendations adopted at the 1957 session of the International Labour Conference which I hope to table during the present parliamentary session.
