Northern Territory, Australia.

March 7, 1974, was a pivotal day for male politicians. Speaker of the House Les MacFarlane granted a request by the Leader of the Opposition to wear safari suits during sittings of the Northern Territory Legislative Assembly.

Honourable members, I have received a further request that the standard of male dress be relaxed to include safari jackets. I have been in touch with the federal parliament and I find that the Speaker, Sir Billy Snedden, is allowing safari jackets with shirt and tie. He also allows one member to wear a safari jacket over an open-necked shirt. Therefore, I have decided to accept safari jackets as suitable dress in the Assembly. I must say that I do this very reluctantly because I feel that we have relaxed our standards too far. However, the precedent has been set. I might add that I will not allow T-shirts.

I call that progress.
