A second Federal intervention into the Northern Territory is being considered by Indigenous Affairs Minister Jenny Macklin. Ms Macklin said the Gillard government would not rule out another Federal takeover of key services when the intervention, initiated by the former Howard government in 2007, ends next year. The NT government refused to comment on the possibility of another intervention. However, Opposition Leader Terry Mills said he would support one if Aboriginal people were involved in the development of programs, and it was carried out "with conviction" by the people on the ground.
