Mr WALLIS (GREY, SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - I address my question to the Minister for Social Services. In view of the fact that restrictions apply to many Aboriginals in remote areas in applying for and receiving unemployment benefit if they are not in employment, what is the criterion laid down by the Department before these Aboriginals qualify for receipt, of unemployment benefits?

Mr WENTWORTH - The procedure and the criteria in regard to Aboriginals are exactly the same as for other Australians.
