A financial institutions duty on bank deposits; Aboriginal land rights; equal employment opportunity legislation outlawing discrimination in the workplace on the grounds of sex, marital status, pregnancy, race, religious or political conviction; the abolition of the death penalty; and the banning of ‘X’ rated material, were issues considered by WA’s State Cabinet in 1984.
Looking back over the past year and a half, I’m amazed by how much we have done, and how close we are to going live with our new system.
