Queensland government funding cuts undermine access to justice

September 12, 2012

Stephen Keim, Salwa Marsh and Kate Moran had an op-ed published on Online Opinion arguing against the Newman Government’s cuts to several community legal centres and support services.

“The recent funding cuts will have a serious negative effect on the ability of the community to access justice. The government should reconsider the focus of its drive to save government funds. Certainly, the government should consider whether it really wants to cause such adverse impacts to the ability of ordinary Queenslanders to have reasonable access to justice and, through that, equality before the law.”
