Blacks' camp on Yass water supply reserve

 

For two years the Yass Municipal Council has been striving to secure the removal of the aborigines' camp from the Yass water supply reserve. The latest position is that the N.S.W. Chief Secretary's Department has advised the Council that the question waits consideration by the Government as soon as opportunity offers. Owing to the many more urgent matters requiring to be dealt with at the present time it could not be definitely stated when the decision was likely to be reached.

The Council will now consider approaching Mr. Tully, with a view to having a question asked on the matter in the State Parliament.
