Mr HASLUCK (CURTIN, WESTERN AUSTRALIA) (Minister for Territories) - With respect, I suggest that the honorable member is not quite exact in describing the Administrator's Council as forming part of the Legislative Council. As honorable members will know from the act which they passed in this

Parliament, the Administrator's Council provides means by which some members of the Legislative Council are being associated with the executive side of government in the Northern Territory. Two of the members of the Administrator's Council, although still members of the Legislative Council, are sharing in executive duties.

The future operation of the Administrator's Council is a matter which is at present receiving the personal attention of the Administrator, who still remains primarily responsible for executive action in the administration of the Northern Territory.

Suggest corrections
