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
