Description
ESTABLISHMENT:
The Small Claims Tribunal Act of 1973 established Small Claims Tribunals to bring parties to a dispute involving a small claim, to a settlement acceptable to the parties, or failing that, to make an order in respect to the issue in dispute. Small Claims Tribunals may be constituted in any part of the State by a Referee sitting alone.

FUNCTIONS:
The Tribunal is empowered to deal with claims below a specified amount [currently $7,500] by consumers or traders who feel they have been disadvantaged in a transaction with a trader, as well as claims involving property damage by a motor vehicle and fencing, tenancy and [from 1989] mobile home disputation.

ABOLITION:
The Magistrates Court, Mount Morgan was abolished from 1 Jan 1991, with jurisdiction transferred to the Magistrates Court, Rockhampton. Consequently, the operation of the Small Claims Tribunal, Mount Morgan ceased from that date.

Minister for Justice and Attorney General 1 Jul 1973 - 31 Aug 1989
Minister for Justice 31 Aug 1989 - 7 Dec 1989
