The Hon Robert McClelland MP
Attorney-General
Parliament House
CANBERRA ACT 2600

Dear Attorney,

I am pleased to present to you the Native Title Report 2007 which reports on the operation of the Native Title Act 1993 and its effect on the exercise and enjoyment of human rights of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in accordance with Section 209 of the Native Title Act 1993.

In accordance with Section 46C(1)(a) of the Human Rights and Equal Opportunity Commission Act 1986, I have also used this opportunity to examine the enjoyment and exercise of human rights by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in light of other changes to policy and legislation, made between 1 July 2006 and 30 June 2007, and that affect land and waters.

I look forward to discussing the report with you.

Yours sincerely

Tom Calma
