Civil Liberties

Dr. J. C. Beaglehole of Victoria resented the fact that anyone in this state of civilisation should have had to talk on civil liberties. He noted that many restrictions in liberties resulted from war; he defined various liberties which were often modified. There had been an erosion of civil liberties in New Zealand as exampled by the War Regulations Continuance Act, 1952, Public Safety Conservation Act. 1932, Public Safely Emergency Regulations, 1939. Police Offences Amendment Act, 1951, upon which he spoke briefly.
