He said there had already been consultations with groups and individuals on the issue and there will be public consultations next year.

Al-Rawi made the statement while speaking in Senate this morning, in response to a question from Opposition Senator Wade Mark.

He said Government had written to more than 100 entities, including the Medical Association and Law Association and had many people volunteer contributions.
