Senator LAUCKE (SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - Has the Minister for Aboriginal Affairs had an opportunity to study the reports on the economic, scientific and financial management aspects of the Aboriginal turtle farming projects being conducted on the Torres Strait Islands, which were prepared by Dr A. F. Carr of the Florida University, Professor Main of Western Australia and Mr L. Smart, a management consultant? If so, can the Minister indicate the conclusions and recommendations arrived at in these reports and when he proposes to table the reports in the Senate?

Senator CAVANAGH - The report has been prepared as a result of a request by the Special Minister of State. So far I have not seen the report. I understand that there was a report in the newspapers which would suggest that Senator Willesee has received the report. I am now having discussions with the 3 men who compiled the report. It is suggested that the report should be tabled after it is considered by the Government. As I say, I have not seen the report and whether it will be tabled is, I think, a question for the Special Minister of State to decide.
