A bill to repeal Western Australia’s 2021 Aboriginal Cultural Heritage laws and replace them with an updated version of an older Act has passed through both houses of Parliament this week.

The 2021 legislation came into place earlier this year, but Premier Roger Cook announced plans to repeal it after just five weeks, following pressure from farmers and landowners.

A new version of the 1972 bill will be installed instead.
