Concern on proposed changes to Summary Offences and Sentencing Amendment Bill

Fitzroy Legal Service, together with a range of community organisations, have expressed concern about the impact that the proposed changes to the Summary Offences and Sentencing Amendment Bill 2013 (Vic) will have on community sector clients, including some of the most marginalised and disadvantaged members of the Victorian community.

A briefing paper has been developed, outlining these concerns.  Individuals and organisations are encouraged to share their concerns with members of Parliament, before February 18, when the Bill is due back before the Parliament.
