Mr Cameron Thompson asked the Attorney-General, upon notice, on 6 February 2001:

(1) How many judgements by Justices of the Federal Court of Australia have been outstanding for a period of more than 6 months.

(2) Is he able to say when these judgements will be delivered.


Mr Williams (Attorney-General) —The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

(1) I am advised by the Federal Court that as at 27 February 2001 there were only 28 judgments of the Court outstanding for a period of more than six months. The figure of 28 represents only 1.5 per cent of the number of judgments delivered during 1999-2000, that is 1877.

(2) I am further advised by the Court that the judgments will be delivered as soon as possible having regard to the workload of the Court.
