Joint Standing Committee
on the National Capital and External Territories
Inquiry into Norfolk Island Electoral Matters
On 1 November 2000 the Minister for Regional Services, Territories and
Local Government, Senator the Hon Ian Macdonald, requested that the Joint
Standing Committee on the National Capital and External Territories inquire
into, and report on, laws relating to eligibility to vote and candidature
for the Legislative Assembly of Norfolk Island.
At the time Parliament was prorogued in October 2001, the Committee had not yet finalised its report and the reference subsequently lapsed. On 7 May 2002 the Committee of the new Parliament had the matter re-referred and a draft report is in the process of being completed.
