Offshore constitutional settlement 1980: a case study in federalism

Brazil, Pat

Description

Introduction: The main specific reference to powers over offshore matters in the Australian Constitution was in Section 51(x) giving the Commonwealth Parliament power to legislate for ‘fisheries in Australian waters beyond territorial limits’. It was held that this meant that the Commonwealth had no power to legislate with respect to fisheries within three nautical miles of the coast of a State.
