Brisbane Meetings to discuss serious concerns about the failure of Government to adopt meaningful changes to CSA Legislation

The Howard Government have reneged on implementing the recommendations contained in the JSC Report and suggested by the backbenchers committee.

Riding roughshod over the sub-committee's stated concerns (11 to 8 voted against accepting the minimalist Cabinet recommendations) Cabinet have forced the acceptance of the reforms by deceit. Promises given by the Prime Minister of further changes in the May 1998 budget coerced some of the backbench committee and the Party room into compliance with Cabinet's proposals. However, this promise lasted one day only. It now appears the changes will not be brought in until 1998 and 1999, thereby ruling out further changes in May 1998.
