Mr NELSON (NORTHERN TERRITORY, NORTHERN TERRITORY) - Has the Minister for Territories received a request from a representative of creditors of V. and K. (N-T.) Limited and of Veshner and Keserue Proprietary Limited, contracting firms recently operating in the Northern Territory and now in liquidation, to refer the articles and operations of these two companies to the Attorney-General's Department for investigation? If the Minister has received this request, will he take immediate steps to have the investigation made so as to protect workers, trades people and local contractors from exploitation either in the form of unpaid wages or unpaid accounts which run into many thousands of pounds? In this instance, because of the financial structure of the company, not one penny will be recovered by way of dividend.
