Correspondence from Port Darwin constituents following the retirement of Shane Stone as Chief Minister. Extensive mail, fax and telephone messages were received from throughout the Territory and from Australia wide, hence, a small selection of the correspondence has been included in the archives. Extract: ''Congratulations on all your achievements and in particular the development of the Territory's economy. You have also heightened the Territory's profile both nationally and internationally''. Shane Stone's response, of 28 April including support for Denis Burke attached. Extract: I wish Denis Burke and his new team every success for the future. I believe I have left behind a legacy of good policy and sound economic growth. I hope it is not squandered but rather built upon''.
