Jurisdiction

Mr.R. GREEN asked the Prime Min ister, upon notice -

1.   Are district courts in the Mandated Territory of New Guinea limited as to jurisdiction; if so, to what extent?

2.   Seeing that all the presiding officers of district courts have admittedly no legal qualifications, what legal training, if any, have any of those persons had?

3.   Why is there at present no legally qualified stipendiary or police magistrate in the territory?
