Readers will recall our reports before Christmas on the Senate Legal & Constitutional Affairs Committee Inquiry into the Defence Legislation Amendment (Aid to Civilian Authorities) Bill 2005.

This is the legislation to put troops on the street. The Greens have a good wrap of its implications up on their site here.

Who cares? Hardly anyone. Have a closer look at the Committee’s website. Public submissions closed this week – and, so far, only ten have been accepted.

Relaxed and comfortable.
