QUESTIONS WITHOUT NOTICE - Tuesday 21 December 1976 1714 Mrs LAWRIE to Miss .A,NDREW ANSWER Is she able to advise whether the scheduled building of Dripstone High School. has been brought forward as requested by so many sections of this community? No. 1715 Mr TUNGUTALUM to Mr RYAN ANSWER Could he advise me. whether the owner of Lot B of Section 290 Hundred of Bagot at Howard Springs intends to build an engineering workshop 150 feet long on the block mentioned? I do not think that I will have time today to get an answer for the honourable member. I therefore ask him to put the question on notice. 1716 Mr KENTISH to Mr POLLOCK . Is it a fact that the Acting Area Adviser at Nhu1unbuy issues liquor permits for Arnhem on personal request, and without reference to town councils? ANSWER Mr Speaker, I do not know the answer to the question. I know that the Area Community Adviser at Nhu1unbuy issues the permits for the Arnhem Land area but I do not know how he goes about consultation. If he does not consult the community councils, that is quite disturbing and not in keeping with the policy being espoused by the Department of Aboriginal Affairs. I will take the matter up with the department and advise the member personally later. 1717 Mr KENTISH to Mr POLLOCK ANSWER I refer to the recent increase in child endowment payments, which to some settlements brought an extra $100,000 a year. Has there been any monitoring to see what effect this extra money has or how it is being expended in these areas? I am unable to advise the honourable 'member on this matter. If he would put the question on notice, ana:nswerwill be obtained.
