Senator McLAREN asked the Minister representing the Minister for the Interior, upon notice:

(1)   How often has a visiting Justice attended the Darwin Gaol in the past 12 months.

(2)   Is there a regular time-table set down for a Justice to visit the Gaol and, if there is no regular time-table, what is the reason for the situation.

Senator COTTON-The Minister for the Interior has provided the following answer to the honourable senator's question:

(1)   In the 12 months ended 31st August 1972 a visiting Justice attended on 10 occasions.

(2)   A Justice should visit the Gaol at least once a month. Temporary absences of the Justices from Darwin have prevented compliance with this requirement. The appointment of additional Justices to the panel is being considered.
