Summary
"This submission argues firstly that the label ?slavery? is more relevant to an Inquiry into Stolen Wages than may be first thought. Government officials amongst others regularly applied the term to discussions of Aboriginal labour in the Northern Territory and elsewhere until the 1970s, when it unaccountably dropped from sight. Secondly, I wish to survey the historical and legal position of Aboriginal workers whose entitlements may have been withheld by the Northern Territory Administration in its various forms. The purpose of such a ?case study? is to consider whether Aboriginal people outside Queensland and New South Wales may have similar claims to those within those jurisdictions, where extensive research and political and legal developments have already occurred. Thirdly, the submission will consider the possibilities for legal redress in the event that the Senate Inquiry does not lead to a satisfactory political settlement for Indigenous claims."
