George Williams is a constitutional lawyer and told 6PR Breakfast, “there is a big obstacle in the way and that’s because the High Court has looked at this once before back in 1926 and what it said then is that section 99 doesn’t limit what the Commonwealth does when it gives out money to the States.”
