Mr NELSON (NORTHERN TERRITORY, NORTHERN TERRITORY) - My question to the Acting Attorney-General is supplementary to that which was asked by the honorable member for Warringah about the appointment of a permanent judge to the

Northern Territory Supreme Court, ls il a fact that although Mr. Acting Justice Dunn dealt with a considerable number of criminal matters he had to leave the civil list virtually untouched? In view of the fact that a permanent appointment is urgent, and in view of the apparently unsuccessful attempts that have been made to fill the vacancy, will the Minister consider appointing an officer of the Crown Law Department? I am sure that many such officers could fill the position with credit and distinction.
