NCOSS Submission: NSW Attorney General's Review of the Bail Act. NCOSS has long been a strong advocate for changes to the bail laws, which are resulting in more people being held on remand, many of whom do not subsequently receive a custodial sentence.
NCOSS Submission: Comments on the Human Rights (Parliamentary Scrutiny) Bill 2010 and the Human Rights (Parliamentary Scrutiny)(Consequential Provisions) Bill 2010 Inquiry.

We have also limited our comments to the Human Rights (Parliamentary Scrutiny) Bill 2010 (the Bill).
