Senator WRIGHT (Tasmania) - It is unfortunate that the Minister for Aboriginal Affairs (Senator Cavanagh) used words of such levity. But for the fact that they have gone on the record I would treat them as laughable, as he did. I want the record to show that the suggestion

Senator McManus - Why do you not take an appointment?

Senator WRIGHT - There were all sorts of suggestions of that sort here on a former occasion. We had a speech from Senator Kennelly suggesting that I had been offered judicial appointment. I told him that, if he thought that, a Committee of Privileges should be constituted. I do not take this laughable suggestion in the same sense and but for the fact that it will appear in print I would not have risen. I rise only to express my derision of a Minister who has time to indulge in such levity in Committee.
