Constitutional Guarantees - 1971

Committee Meeting, 19th May 1971.

'The Committee should give high priority to making definite and specific its general intention, already declared, to press for the incorporation of guarantees of freedom in the Australian Constitution. The Universal Declaration of Human Rights was adopted by the General Assembly of the United Nations in 1948 but this has never been ratified by Australia. It is the Council for Civil Liberties' policy to press for the ratification of this Declaration of Human Rights.'
