I am pleased to confirm the Hon Dr John Bannon AO, former Premier of South Australia and member of the Prime Minister's Advisory Panel supporting the White Paper on Federation will deliver a keynote address to the National General Assembly of Local Government (NGA) on Tuesday 16 June.
Dr Bannon brings a unique perspective to the debate on the Federation, being both a former head of government as well as one of the country's most renowned historians on Federation. His insights will be of considerable use and interest for local government as we move toward the final stages of the Federal Government's White Paper process.
