Senator RAE (Tasmania) -Mr Chairman,the time of night is 10.35 p.m. The Senate is about to rise. We are anxious that funds of just over $40m which are to be provided to Aborigines in Australia should be made available to them as soon as possible. I wish simply to explain that it is only for that reason that at the Committee stage I do not raise a number of matters which otherwise would have been raised in the debate. They will be raised at the next opportunity which presents itself when we are dealing with some general aspects of the administration of Aboriginal affairs. I simply want to take the opportunity to explain that it is not because there are no unsatisfactory aspects of the grant to Queensland and our desire to see it increased that I do not take the matter any further at this stage.

Bill agreed to.

Bill reported without amendment; report adopted.
