Submission to Inquiry into the Native Title Amendment (Reform) Bill 2011

Last published: 1 July 2011Author: ANTaR

In this submission, ANTaR indicates its broad support for the overall objectives of the bill, to create a fairer native title system for recognising and adjudicating the rights of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. We encourage the Committee to ensure thorough consideration is given both to the overall objectives of the legislation and the specific measures proposed within it. While the submission notes that the Act could be improved to enable it to better achieve its objectives, ANTaR encourages this Committee to urge that the current Bill be used as a vehicle to make such improvements.
