"Thirty per cent of our (Northern Territory) population is Aboriginal; they are the traditional owners of the Northern Territory and own 50% of the Territory land mass and 80% of our coastline. Aboriginal Territorian voices must be heard. Their voices are in our policies, our team and our government. We have made the groundbreaking decision to have a sub-committee of Cabinet that will feature all our bush and Indigenous members of parliament, and will feature Aboriginal Territorians, chaired by me as Chief Minister and co-chaired by the Members for Arnhem and Namatjira. It will have a clear agenda to provide advice on a treaty with our first people on land and sea. It will also audit and hold us to account as a government on implementing our local decision-making policies."
