|Message||We accept that current legislation regarding powers of the police are not up to scratch, and that coherency in police powers should be a must. We are also rather equivocal about Parliamentary privilege, and do not hold a particular view on the matter. However, we cannot accept that all defendants are given free legal aid.|
Now the CDR/LDA accepts that the quality of the lawyer is important, and that prejudices against those who cannot afford a good one can result in an unproportional amount of criminals being poor. For this reason, we would back legal representation to be given to those on low incomes. But to spend money on all people would be a waste of resources, and not worth the cost. Let us remember that a lot of people in these positions have just broken our laws.

|Message||The AFP would support a bill providing assistance to low income defendants. However, we simple cannot accept the removal of police powers from local governments or the removal of the right of members of the Senate to speak their minds.|
