Referendum Council delivers final report

July 17, 2017

A referendum on constitutional change for an indigenous voice in parliament is being urged.

The prime minister and opposition leader have been urged to hold a public vote on changing the constitution to include an indigenous voice in parliament.

The Referendum Council, set up in 2015 to advise Malcolm Turnbull and Bill Shorten on constitutional recognition for indigenous Australians, canvassed the proposal during a meeting with the pair on Monday.

"We need to ensure that any changes that are proposed are ones that meet both the expectations of first Australians but also will bring together all Australians," Mr Turnbull said during the meeting in Sydney.
