MOSELMANE CALLS FOR ABORIGINAL FLAG TO BE DISPLAYED IN LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL CHAMBER

 Labor MLC Shaoquett Moselmane today called for the Aboriginal Flag to be displayed inside the Chamber of the state's Upper House of Parliament.
 "The Legislative Assembly already displays the Aboriginal Flag, and it is surprising that the Legislative Council does not."
 "We should display the Aboriginal Flag alongside the Australian Flag and the Flag of New South Wales," Mr Moselmane said.
 "The Legislative Council is the oldest legislative body in Australia – having first met in 1824."
 "While this is a symbolic gesture, I think it speaks volumes about our state's history and recognises our first nation," he said.
 Mr Moselmane cemented his calls for the flag to be displayed by introducing a motion in the Legislative Council this morning and placed on the Notice Paper. 
 It will be debated in the Legislative Council in the coming weeks.
