In January 2018, the former New South Wales Opposition Leader stated Labor would negotiate a Treaty recognising traditional Indigenous ownership of NSW if elected to government in 2019. It was hoped that a Treaty would acknowledge the wrongs of the past, ‘put things right for the future’ and provide a ‘truthful and honourable basis for our reconciliation with the state’s first people.’
However, the current NSW Government, to date, has not expressed any intentions towards advancing the Treaty process.
