Indigenous voice wording, gender pay gap on PM’s agenda
A historic bill to recognise the First Peoples of Australia by enshrining an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander voice in the constitution is set to be introduced to federal parliament.
Prime Minister Anthony Albanese last week revealed the question to be asked in a referendum on an Indigenous voice to parliament later this year and the draft constitutional amendment outlining how the voice will work.
Legislation with the new wording will be introduced to parliament on Thursday.
The government’s $15 billion National Reconstruction Fund to boost manufacturing in Australia is also expected to progress.
