Mr CALDER (Northern Territory) -I wish to say a few words on this matter. I may be able to help the honourable member for Hughes (Mr Les Johnson) by informing him that for years the present courthouse at Alice Springs has been one of the most uncomfortable places that any legal fraternity could inhabit. The quarters occupied by the judge in the courthouse are very cramped and the courthouse itself is far below any acceptable standard. Therefore, I can assure my honourable friend that the proposed building is necessary. The Minister said that work on the building would take place 'in the future'. I hope that the construction of this courthouse will commence not too far in the future.

Question resolved in the affirmative.
