Gray, Anthony (2015) The Australian quarantine and biosecurity legislation: constitutionality and critique. Journal of Law and Medicine, 22 (4). pp. 788-810. ISSN 1320-159X

Abstract

This article considers the existing quarantine legislation and the proposed new biosecurity legislation in terms of their constitutionality, and more broadly, their public policy merit or otherwise. It concludes the proposed new legislation is a vast improvement on the existing quarantine legislation, not surprising given it was first passed more than a century ago.
