A reminder

Eighteen months ago, the government promised to strengthen the Bill of Rights Act, by explicitly affirming the power of the courts to issue declarations of inconsistency and requiring Parliament to formally respond to them.

Since then - crickets.

Which raises the obvious question: are they actually going to do this, or is it something - like restoring voting rights to prisoners - which is "not a priority" for them?
