Part of a package of three bills to implement the Stronger Futures in the Northern Territory framework, the bill implements three measures relating to Aboriginal people in the Northern Territory by: providing for alcohol management plans to be approved by the Minister for Indigenous Affairs, and for the minister and the relevant Northern Territory minister to undertake a review within three years on whether alcohol-related harm among aboriginal people has reduced; enabling the Commonwealth to amend Northern Territory legislation by regulation relating to community living areas and town camps to enable private ownership in town camps and flexible long term leasing arrangements for business in community living areas; and providing for a community store licensing scheme to operate for a 10-year period to provide food security for Aboriginal communities. Also requires the minister to facilitate an independent review of the operation of the Act after seven years.
