Federal Magistrates in Brisbane to juggle their accommodation: CEO

The acting CEO of the Federal Magistrates Court has told the Senate estimates committee hearing that there have been difficulties accommodating the 11 Brisbane based Federal Magistrates.

Mr Foster advised the committee that a report has just been delivered to the Federal Court, the Federal Magistrates Court and the AAT about how to juggle space in the Brisbane courts building:

It refers to how best we can utilise the space in the Brisbane Commonwealth Law
Courts building. It is primarily around the fact that the federal magistrates in that building on level five have inadequate accommodation. It is an attempt to look at moving function around the building—I am talking about ‘judicial function’—to try to place the Federal Magistrates Court on one floor of the building.
