ACL supports SA Bill to ban offensive ads on vehicles

The Australian Christian Lobby today supported Labor MP Katrine Hildyard’s bill to ban offensive and obscene slogans on South Australian registered vehicles.

ACL’s state director Christopher Brohier, along with other supporters of the ban were present in Parliament for the reading of the Bill.   

Debate on the Bill was adjourned on the Government’s motion until next Wednesday 5 December.   

Mr Brohier said, “ACL hopes this is an indication the Government is seriously considering the merits of this Bill and that they will expeditiously support the ban on offensive advertising on vehicles when debate resumes next week.”   

“I’m confident Minister Knoll does not support the obscene and offensive slogans that are displayed on Wicked Campers’ vehicles, which is why ACL is calling on him to act in a bi-partisan way with Ms Hildyard to see this Bill, with the amendments ACL, has called for, passed next week”.  

Mr Brohier called on all right-thinking South Australians to contact their local member’s office to ask that the Bill be supported.   

The Australian Christian Lobby will continue to work alongside Ms Hildyard to ensure this bill is passed in parliament.
