Queensland government ‘plan for a plan’ on homosexual convictions

Attorney General Yvette D’Arth is directing the Queensland Law Reform Commission to investigate the best ways to expunge those records. It comes after a research paper by the LGBTI Legal Service and other community legal centres last year which recommended a panel be set up to assess applications from men convicted under past crimes.
