The submission concentrates on two major points:-
• the desirability of at least some of our fundamental civil and political rights being entrenched in the State's Constitution, to be changed only by approval of the majority of the electors at a referendum, and
• the need, under our existing Constitutional Act, for any such entrenchment to first be approved itself at a referendum;
and adds a few thoughts on • the kinds of rights which ought to be submitted for entrenchment.
