QUESTIONS WITHOUT ~OTICE - Tuesday 7 December 1976 1640 Mrs LAWRIE to Dr LETTS When is it likely that commissioners will be appointed to inquire into the Lottery and Gaming Ordinance? I cannot tell the honourable member when this information will be available. She asked a similar question at the last meeting and I indicated that I believed that the appointment was pending. I pointed out that it would be the Administrator's privilege to make the announcement when the information was available. I understand the matter has advanced a little since I gave that answer. Once again, I referred the matter this morning to the Canberra administration. This is another situation where what should be the simplest of procedures is being impeded because more than one department is involved down there. I rang Canberra this morning and I believe that we are very close to getting the reply which the honourable member for Nightcliff seeks. I hope that we may get it during these sittings. 1641 Mr VALE to Miss ANDREW ANSWER Can she advise the last date of the stations outside of Darwin? When does propose to visit those areas? Police Commissioner's visit to the Police Commissioner again I understand that the Police Commissioner last visited Alice Springs at the end of May 1975.

It is anticipated that he will be making a tour of as many stations as possible outside of Darwin early in the New Year. 1642 Mr MANUELL to Mr TUXWORTH ANS~R Have petroleum leases and applications lodged by Magellan Petroleum and Oilmin for areas within the Amadeus Basin been granted? Is it a fact that the companies concerned have lodged writs against the Australian Government and the Administrator of the Northern Territory for failing to issue these leases? As yet there have been no leases issued for the areas to which the member alludes and it is my understanding that an action between the principals of the exploration licence areas and the Government has begun. 1643 Mr VALE to Miss ANDREW ANSWER Is it a fact that two new police motor bikes are in storage in Alice Springs? How many police bikes are in service in Alice Springs? How many police officers are attached to the Traffic Section in Alice Springs? I did have some warning of this question. I understand that two police motor cycles are held in storage in Alice Springs to replace the two existing motor cycles currently in use. The motor cycles in use are due for replacement during February 1977 and the authorised establishment of motor bikes, I suppose, is only two. The authorised strength
