5. The '1975 constitutional crisis' refers to the impasse which developed when the opposition-controlled Senate in Canberra refused to pass the Whitlam Labor Government's annual legislation appropriating money for the 'ordinary annual services' of government. Ultimately, the situation was only resolved when the Governor General, Sir John Kerr, used his constitutional powers to dismiss prime minister Whitlam and, on the advice of caretaker prime minister Malcolm Fraser, dissolve both houses of the Australian Commonwealth Parliament. At the resultant election in December 1975, the Fraser-led Liberal-Country party Coalition won a majority in both houses. Back

Under the new system of proportional representation for the Legislative Council introduced in time for the 1989 election members of the Legislative Council were elected by proportional representation but with the state divided into six separate regions and with a significant degree of malapportionment between the metropolitan and country regions respectively.

29. WA Inc. (or Western Australia incorporated) is a term which came to be applied to the series of business dealings between Western Australian state governments (those headed by Brian Burke and Peter Dowding between 1983 and 1990) and a number of private businessmen during the 1980s and into the beginning of the 1990s. Initially, the term seems to have been used to promote 'a positive image' of the Burke Government's policies designed to produce more substantial investment in resource projects and to provide 'additional sources of state finance independent of the federal government'. It also implied greater similarity between the operations of government and those of business. The substantial loss of public moneys in some of these transactions, more especially in the post-1987 period, led to the word becoming a 'byword for maladministration, especially involving commercial activities' and to the appointment of the Royal Commission into Commercial Activities of Government and other matters in 1990 (referred to colloquially as the WA Inc. Royal Commission) which presented its final report(s) in 1992.
