Mr FAIRBAIRN (FARRER, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I desire to ask the Minister for Territories a question without notice. In view of the recent action of the British Government in granting selfgovernment to Ghana, and similar moves in Singapore, does the Minister not feel that this would be an appropriate time to consider moves towards self-government in the Northern Territory? Is it intended that the elected representatives of the people in the Northern Territory Legislative Council should always be outnumbered by the nominated heads of departments? Has the Minister considered nominating Territory residents of long standing in place of departmental heads?
