Business of the House (11 Oct 2018)

Andrew Jones: Local post offices are typically independent private businesses and they provide important and valuable services to their communities.

Andrew Jones: You mentioned that young women need greater understanding of consent and boundaries—that legislation may also send a signal or a message to them about what is not acceptable—but also that young people may be hesitant in reporting if they feel they will be caught up in the criminal justice system.
