For the second year running the Hon G Palmer, as he has now become, was invited to address the Annual General Meeting of the New Zealand Section of the International Commission of Jurists. In this paper given at Wellington on 6 December 1984 the Attorney-General develops and considers from his new perspective of executive responsibility some of the themes of his earlier paper, published at  NZLJ 31. He explains what the new government has already done and what it hopes to achieve, more particularly in the area of parliamentary reform and the enactment of a Bill of Rights. He sees the two as interrelated and as involving a radical change in administrative, legislative and judicial responsibilities and attitudes.
