Mr SPEAKER - The President of the Legislative Council for the Northern Territory has communicated to me the terms of a resolution of the Council agreed to on 12th April 1973. In accordance with the request contained in the resolution I inform the House of the terms of the resolution, which are as follows:

That the Speaker of the House of Representatives and the President of the Senate in the Australian Parliament be requested to bring to the notice of their respective Houses the opinion of this Council that it is appropriate that legislation on matters of a non-federal nature in the Northern Territory be the exclusive prerogative of the Legislative Council to which body the Federal Parliament has properly delegated full powers in that respect.

Suggest corrections
