Senator KEEFFE (QUEENSLAND) - I ask the Minister for Aboriginal Affairs: Has a firm of consultants, Clarke, Gazzard and Flower, put forward a plan for re-housing the Aboriginal community at Mowanjum? Does the plan provide for the construction of homes on part of an easement for the overland telegraph line and was the proposed site within 1,000 feet of a projected extension of the local airport runway? Has the re-housing plan for this area been cancelled and was the firm concerned paid or is it to be paid approximately $7,000 in fees for a plan which was unworkable?

Senator CAVANAGH - I know nothing of the housing plan, the period when the consultants made this report, or what the report is about. I suggest that the honourable senator put the question on notice and I will get the full details.
