Don't let our Human Rights Act slip away07-Mar-2017
Will Queensland's Human Rights Act slip away?
The widespread support for the introduction of a Human Rights Act in Queensland was evidenced in the over 400 submissions received by last year's Human Rights Inquiry into whether Queensland needs a Human Rights Act.
Organisations endorsing the Human Rights Act are growingly concerned that Queensland’s human rights bill has not yet been introduced. In Western Australia the promise of human rights legislation was lost following the Western Australian Labor Government losing the election in 2008. Learning from experience we know that Queensland's human rights legislation must be introduced as soon as possible to ensure that the bill is passed into law before an election is called.
