Thursday 25 July 2019
Minister Ben Wyatt has used his address at the annual Yule River meeting to provide an update on the progress being made to reforms to the Aboriginal Heritage Act.
The second phase of the consultation has recently concluded and has resulted in overwhelming support being reached by members of Aboriginal groups, community stakeholders, the mining sector and local governments for the current outdated act to be replaced.
