Joint Standing Committee on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Affairs; Reference
This is a reference to a new committee. The committee hasn't yet had a meeting. It's a complicated subject, and the committee, I think, ought to be accorded some curtesy as to the time line of the workload and be given the capacity to do its work of due diligence and to report back to this chamber at a time that it feels it can undertake the task. It will deliver a report that will be so crucial to the future directions of our nation.
