Mr Donald Cameron (GRIFFITH, QUEENSLAND) - Has the AttorneyGeneral seen reports that some State governments are contemplating banning a Christian religious group called the Children of God? Does the Minister agree that an incredibly dangerous precedent is set when a government commences passing judgments on any religious group, Christian or non-Christian? Will the Minister assure the House that this type of legislation will not be introduced in the Commonwealth Territories? Will the Minister advise the House whether it is constitutional for State governments to move against religious groups?
