Democrats’ Party Room Bulletin

 

Tuesday 10 February 1999

 

Democrats support second Referendum question

 

The Party Room today gave unanimous support for a second question at the Referendum that relates to a new preamble.

 

The Democrats see a fundamental part of this as the inclusion of recognition of the rights of Aboriginal people and Torres Strait Islanders. We also appreciate the opportunity for a preamble to encapsulate values including equality of all people before the law and the recognition of gender equality

 

For further in formation:

Senator Natasha Stott Despoja,  02 6277 3645,  0418812589
