Hi Everyone,

As you may know, the Parliamentary Advisory Committee tabled it’s report in parliament last Wednesday for consideration.  The 72 page report is available on the website to read, here is the link

I have been busy digesting it and speaking with the Attorney General’s Office, The Department of Home Affairs and our local Federal MPs office and have found out that the Bill will be tabled again in Parliament next week.


I have written to the Dept of Home Affairs, who is handling the Bill with the AGs office in preparation for next weeks sitting, a copy of my email is attached.  One of my main concerns is the fact that traders were not consulted during this process, a fact that the Committee has admitted to.  I have requested that the Bill be held over to allow  traders to be consulted and given a fair hearing on the matter.


It is now time to bombard our local Federal MPs, with only a few days before they all head to Canberra for the last sitting for 2023, it is important that we ensure as many Federal MPs are aware of our concerns as a matter of urgency.


Please, please circulate between all traders and collectors.   Collectors, please note, this is important even if you don’t trade with others, without the right to trade our collections will become worthless.


I encourage everyone to get onto your local FEDERAL MPs NOW
