Religious Discrimination Bill is flawed
Policy and public affairs
Law Council President Arthur Moses SC has published an op-ed article in the Daily Telegraph highly critical of government's Religious Discrimination Bill, a consultation draft of which was released earlier this week.
"Rather than waste further energy on this flawed Bill, the Government should start a mature consideration of a Charter of Rights. Rights and obligations need to be set out clearly in one place through a Charter of Rights so they are properly understood by Australians", said Moses SC. Instead, he said that the government's current approach to protection of rights risks "confusion and conflict".
