Native Title application inquiries

​The Federal Court may request the Tribunal hold an inquiry into a matter or issue relevant to the determination of native title.

In September 2013 the Hon Justice John Dowsett directed the Tribunal to hold a native title application inquiry pursuant to Subdivision AA of Division 5, Part 6 of the Act.  This is the first time that order has been made for the Tribunal to hold such an inquiry.
