Gary Higgins - Territorians should have an equal right to make their own laws

14th Sep 2018

Should those who live in the Territory look towards Statehood? It would allow the NT Parliament to gain control over the Aboriginal Land Rights act according CLP Opposition Leader Gary Higgins. This was one of the topics discussed among a delegation to Canberra earlier this week where he and other representatives put forward a petition to Federal parliament to allow more control over decision making in the NT. 

Philippe Perez spoke to Mr Higgins in the below audio about statehood along with other subjects including the National Aboriginal Art Gallery, remote housing and proposed alcohol restrictions in Alice Springs.
