HC Deb 17 February 1949 vol 461 c204W
112. Mr. Palmer

asked the Minister of Supply if he is satisfied that, in the arrangements made by His Majesty's Government with the Australian Government for the testing of rocket and other weapons of war in Australia, proper protection is to be afforded to the aboriginal population.

Mr. J. Freeman

The protection of the aboriginal population is entirely a matter for the Government of the Commonwealth of Australia. The Australian Minister for Defence has stated that the measures which will be taken to protect the welfare of the aborigines affected are such that no injustice to them is involved.
