Mr Jacobi (HAWKER, SOUTH AUSTRALIA) asked the Attorney-General, upon notice:

(   1 ) Is Mr R. J. Withnall, a member of the Legislative Assembly of the Northern Territory and a former Crown Law Officer, Darwin, under contract to the Australian Government to produce a report on Imperial Acts and South Australian Acts still in force in the Northern Territory.

(2)   If so, when was he engaged to produce the report, and has any report been made to the Government.

(3)   If a report has been made, when will it be made public, and when will its recommendations be implemented.

Mr Ellicott - The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows: (1), (2) and (3) No. I am informed that Mr. Withnall agreed to prepare a report on South Australian Acts in force in the Territory for which he was to be paid a fee. He carried out some work on the project but he has not submitted a report and no fee has been paid to him. He has indicated that due to other commitments he is unable to continue with this work. I am currently considering other means of having the work completed.
