Senator DRAKE-BROCKMAN (WESTERN AUSTRALIA) -My question is directed to either the Minister representing the Minister for the Environment and Conservation or the Minister for Customs and Excise and concerns the report prepared by the working party which studied kangaroo conservation methods and harvesting programs. As the party specified a list of requirements to be observed by the States, can the Minister say how many times the working party met and whether it carried out inspections in all or any of the States? Who decides whether management programs submitted by States meet the requirements set out in the working party's report?

Senator MURPHY (NEW SOUTH WALES) (Attorney-General) - In view of the importance of this matter and the interest which the honourable senator has shown in it I think I had better get exact information for him. I will do that without delay.
