Debate on the Native Title Amendment Bill 2017
On the Native Title Amendment (Indigenous Land Use Agreements) Bill 2017, Cathy said: "I believe in this issue it is important to give maximum flexibility to Native Title claim groups. I will support the Bill which implements recommendations of the Australian Law Reform Commission. It allows groups to follow a traditional decision-making process if one is available or to agree to another decision making process. The amendments will provide certainty to Indigenous and non-indigenous parties who have already registered their agreements or whose registration is pending."
