Australia will seek the views of Aborigines before deciding whether to accept a British offer of compensation over nuclear tests in the desert during the 1950s, Reuter reports from Canberra.

Aborigines native to the Maralinga test area in South Australia would be asked their opinion before the cabinet decided whether to accept Britain's offer or go to court, a government spokesman said. Aborigines have demanded full compensation for the loss of their land near the test site.
