Don't open the floodgates

Research output: Contribution to journalNewspaper ArticleProfessional


THE Queensland parliamentary Com­munity Support and Services Committee is now considering decriminalising public drunkenness and begging offences.
In addition to this it is also considering repealing the offence of urinating in a pub­lic place. In December 2021 the Queens­land Law Society wrote to the Queensland Attorney-General citing the need to bring Queensland law into line with other Aus­tralian jurisdictions. It opened the letter by citing the Royal Commission into Aborigi­nal Deaths in Custody, completed in 1991, as being the basis for such action.
