Marshall welcomes action on compensation to Stolen Generations

The State Liberals welcome today’s news that the Weatherill Labor Government will finally provide compensation to the Stolen Generation.

“It has taken the Weatherill Labor Government far too long to come to this position,” said State Liberal Leader Steven Marshall.

“The State Liberals introduced legislation in Parliament over 12 months ago to create a Stolen Generations Compensation Scheme.

“The Weatherill Labor Government refused to support this Bill.

“It would have been better if the Government worked in a bipartisan manner on this issue from the beginning, but action on this important issue is better late than never.”
