Mr Whitlam asked the Attorney-General, upon notice:

What steps have been taken to introduce strata title legislation in the Territories since the last of the States brought such legislation into force on 22nd February 1968.

Mr Hughes - The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

In November1967 a Working Group was appointed by the Government to consider and report upon proposed legislation to make provision for granting unit titles in the Australian Capital Territory.

In December 1969 draft Ordinances for this purpose were circulated for comment to a number of interested bodies. The comments of some bodies with particular interest in the proposed legislation have only recently been received. The comments are now being examined with a view to settling the provisions of the proposed legislation.

The legislation for the Australian Capital Territory should provide the basis for similar legislation for the Northern Territory.
