"That the Aboriginal Land Rights (Northern Territory) Amendment (Delegation) Regulation 2013, as contained in Select Legislative Instrument 2013 No. 272 and made under the Aboriginal Land Rights (Northern Territory) Act 1976, be disallowed [F2013L02122]."
This type of motion is a motion to disallow. Because the majority voted in favour of this motion, it was successful and the Regulation was disallowed.
Senator Moore explained that she brought this motion because she believes that when developing regulations related to Aboriginal land, two key points are always required:
- effective consultation and
- transparency, accountability and consistency in any kind of action that is taken.
