The coalition government supports the development of northern Australia and the economic empowerment of Indigenous communities. We support these developments in North East Arnhem Land. The coalition government worked with the community to negotiate this township lease. A community-held township lease was first proposed in 2007, but no action was taken until this government was elected. The government looks forward to continuing to work with Indigenous Australians to support economic opportunities and land tenure reform.

Question agreed to.
