ABORIGINAL HERITAGE (MISCELLANEOUS) AMENDMENT BILL

22 March, 2016

I thank the shadow minister for his contribution and consideration and advice to the opposition on this matter, and confirm his indication to support the bill.

I rise to speak on this motion with pride but with sadness. There is an old saying in politics: you have different friends on different days for different reasons.

REFERENDUM (DEADLOCKS) BILL

23 February, 2016

I am tempted to say, really, all of what I said on the referendum bill we have just dealt with to the extent that it has been adjourned, namely, this is a bill—this is the short version, you will be pleased to know—that is necessary if we are to amend the constitution in respect of deadlocks, and that if it were to pass the upper house it would be necessary for us to follow it wit......download full article as a pdf

REFERENDUM (APPROPRIATION AND SUPPLY) BILL

11 February, 2016

In short, the Constitution Act 1934, which the government's two preceding bills hope to provide for, is to be amended. However, that act provides that certain bills cannot be presented to the Governor for assent until they have been approved at a referendum. So, even if we were happy to move by majority through this house and move by majority in the Legislative Council the passage of the two ......download full article as a pdf
