Dr CASS (MARIBYRNONG, VICTORIA) - My question is addressed to the Minister for the Arts, among other things. When did the Commonwealth Literary Fund Advisory Board last meet? What scheduled meetings of the Board have been cancelled? How many people have been approached to. become chairman of the Board? How many people have been approached to become members of the Board? Has any proposal been made for reconstructing the Commonwealth Literary Fund or the Advisory Board?

Mr SPEAKER -Order! Before I call the Minister, as there seems to be some confusion in the minds of honourable members as to the correct way in which the Minister should be addressed, I suggest to all honourable members that the Minister be addressed as the Minister for the Environment.

Mr HOWSON (CASEY, VICTORIA) (Minister for Environment, Aborigines and the Arts) - I announced at the end of last week that Professor Blainey had accepted appointment as Chairman of the Advisory Board of the Commonwealth Literary Fund. At the same time I announced that in a very short time I shall be announcing the names of other people to fill some of the vacancies which exist at the present time on the Board. I think that answers all the immediate questions.
