This book outlines the constitutional systems of the six Australian states and ten Commonwealth territories. Its primary focus is on the binding constitutional restrictions which impact on their parliaments and governments. These issues are also dealt with in relation to the three self-governing territories of the ACT, the Northern Territory and Norfolk Island. It is the only Australian legal reference work of its kind which deals specifically with the constitutional systems of the states and territories. Call Number: KU1753 .C37x 2006.
